How to benefit from the Recovery Act

Some of our friends at allied nonprofit organizations are putting on an event in Colorado Springs next week to tell people how they can find jobs, get unemployment insurance and qualify for tax breaks thanks to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

The event is set for 6 to 8 p.m. Oct. 28 at the Gay & Lesbian Fund for Colorado office, 315 E. Costilla St. Anyone may attend. Dinner and child care will be provided. To ask questions or RSVP, call Maggie Gomez or Rosemary Harris Lytle at 303-638-0925 or 800-522-0925.

The Recovery Act was passed in 2009 to help people and communities most hurt by the Great Recession. It's specifically designed to help people who've lost their jobs or need other financial assistance.

The community forum is sponsored by 9to5 National Association of Working Women, NAACP, the Colorado Progressive Coalition and FRESC: Good Jobs, Strong Communities.
