The long-term financial impact on 2,250 families and individuals receiving a $4,000 grant from JFS’s Recovery Action Fund for Tomorrow (RAFT) will be studied by the County’s Office of Evaluation, Performance and Analytics. “Inflation compounds the issues that were already existing for these families,” said Khea Pollard, JFS’s Director of Economic Mobility and Opportunity. Recipients are free to use the money however they decide. “The intent is we want the families to prioritize their needs,” said Alberto Banuelos, the Assistant Director of the County’s Health and Human Services Agency’s Self-Sufficiency Services department.
