Envision the Future: Lifting the time tax

Join us for a panel discussion on what it takes to make interactions with government less of a burden.

From confusing website interfaces to duplicative applications, the little burdens required to access benefit programs add up. This creates a “time tax” on the very people these benefits aim to serve and erodes the public’s trust in government.

At this event, we will discuss how we can help to alleviate these burdens through policy and technology.


April 29, 2022, 12:00pm - 1:00pm EST
