About Us
Bridge to Benefits is a multi-state project by Rural Dynamics Incorporated and Children’s Defense Fund Minnesota to improve the well-being of low-income families and individuals by linking them to public work support programs and tax credits. A core component of the project is an online screening tool designed to help families and individuals understand if they are eligible for six public work support programs and the Earned Income Tax Credit.

Rural Dynamics Incorporated (RDI) seeks to provide programs and develop partnerships to help youth, individuals, and families in achieving economic independence.  Founded in 1968 as Consumer Credit Counseling Service of Montana, Rural Dynamics Incorporated offers a variety of services throughout the state of Montana from financial education, to credit counseling, to asset building in the belief that through these initiatives we will build stronger families and Montana communities.
