Reaching Students Where They Are
Providing our students with access to food, housing, and wellness is crucial for their success, so they can thrive. There are a variety of unmet needs that FoundationCCC addresses through its outreach programs. These include food insecurity, mental health, financial stability, and other basic needs that students may experience. By providing these resources, FoundationCCC is helping to ensure that students have the best opportunity to succeed in their educational pursuits.
California Earned Income Tax Credit Outreach: Community Connect ProgramIncreasing awareness of tax credit eligibility for students.
The Community Connect Program, formerly the Tax Credit & Public Benefits Outreach program, helps to disrupt generational cycles of poverty and improve community outcomes by providing tax credits to parenting and non-parenting working students. FoundationCCC, in partnership with the Golden State Opportunity Foundation, works with campus partners to provide outreach grants, so that more students are aware of and equipped with the knowledge about tax credit eligibility.Learn more
California Low-Cost Auto Insurance OutreachRemoving transportation challenges for Californians.
Expenses other than tuition can account for more than college tuition costs. To holistically address our students’ basic needs, FoundationCCC is working in partnership with the California Department of Insurance to bring awareness to the California Low-Cost Auto Insurance program. The California Low-Cost Auto Insurance (CLCA) program is a state-sponsored program that makes auto insurance affordable and is designed to provide income-eligible affordable rates as a way to meet California’s mandatory insurance law. Outreach for the program will be conducted collaboratively by FoundationCCC’s student ambassadors and select campus partners will conduct peer-to-peer outreach and a social media campaign to promote low-cost auto insurance for students and communities.Learn more
