R2H response to recent increase to EIA rates

The Right to Housing Coalition along with Make Poverty History is responding to the recent announcement of an increase to the Basic Needs Benefit under the Province’s income assistance program (EIA) for Manitobans.  While the increase is helpful, the additional $50 per month will bring EIA recipients’ income up to 47% of the poverty line.  More needs to be done.
