New Help for Working and Unemployed Families Resource Sheet

Programs such as health insurance (RIte Care), child care subsidies, tax credits (EITC), nutrition assistance (SNAP and WIC) and cash assistance (RI Works) are available to families with low or moderate incomes. 

Rhode Island KIDS COUNT has published this resource in English  and Spanish to help working and unemployed Rhode Island families access these services and benefits. If you would like to order copies of these publications, please email [email protected] to request them.
