Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB): Take These Steps to Help Your Homeless Clients Claim Their Stimulus Payment

April 30, 2021

The federal government has been providing financial relief to Americans during the coronavirus pandemic through stimulus payments – also known as Economic Impact Payments (EIPs) – for over the last year. However, millions of people still haven’t claimed payments they’re eligible for, including those experiencing homelessness.

Those experiencing homelessness can get EIPs and other tax benefits by filing a 2020 tax return by May 17, 2021 and claiming the Recovery Rebate Credit.

If you work with or serve people who are experiencing homelessness in your community, utilize our new, printer friendly, EIP landing page that lays out the steps they need to take to receive much-needed financial relief.
