Since 1992, the Rhode Island Community Action Association (RICAA) has been a catalyst for change and a vital part of a coordinated effort to eliminate poverty in our state. We are dedicated to assisting Rhode Islander’s such as yourself, and bettering the accessibility of benefits and services offered to low and middle income residents.
The RI Access to Benefits was developed by the Rhode Island Community Action Association to provide a single, comprehensive, and “One–Door “ access resource to prescreen for potential eligibility to our countless services and programs. Your information will first be sent to the Rhode Island Community Action Association then transmitted to the appropriate network member community action agency right in your neighborhood. This single form will prescreen you for all programs and benefits our partner agencies offer. After review, you will be assigned a personal caseworker at your local community action office.
If you need immediate or emergency help, please call the appropriate
member agency or dial 211.
