Recovery Finance Project
People who are incarcerated often face enormous financial challenges when they leave prison, such as debt, damaged credit, and inability to access financial services. People who are structurally marginalized due to racism and mental health stigma are even more likely to have these financial problems, which create barriers to successful re-entry. The Recovery Finance Project will address the financial well-being of justice involved people with mental health challenges. We will work with community partners across the New Haven region, including the City of New Haven Financial Empowerment Center, to implement an intervention targeting community level determinants of financial well-being for this population.
