Description of Service Step Up works to promote policies and programs that help low-income Savannah families become financially secure and build, maintain and protect financial assets such as savings, homeownership and entrepreneurship. Programs include:

Bank on Savannah: a program adopted by the Banking Taskforce to help people without a bank account access free and low-cost checking and savings accounts.

Access to Public Benefits: Step Up and its partners help families to understand and apply for public benefits such as SNAP, Medicaid and PeachCare so that they can make the most of their paychecks.
