Fintech’s Role in Addressing Public Benefits Barriers

Tuesday, July 26

Thanks to the generous support of The New York Community Trust, we developed the report — Can Fintech Resolve Public Benefit Obstacles? — to analyze fintech’s role and use in public benefits, as well as lessons from Change Machine’s financial coaches.

In this report, we found that fintechs can help resolve public benefit obstacles as long as:

  • Critical and necessary changes are made to the public benefits system
  • Fintechs don’t replicate or exacerbate current inequitable practices

On July 26th, we’ll continue the conversation in our roundtable discussion: Fintech’s Role in Addressing Public Benefits Barriers. We’ll convene practitioners, fintech innovators, and elected officials to discuss how we can use equity-minded fintech to overcome systemic barriers and make public benefits more accessible for Black and Brown women navigating financial insecurity.

Join our conversation on Tuesday, July 26th, at 11:00 AM ET | 8:00 AM PT! If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact Emma Cordova.
