FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Gov. Andy Beshear has announced a new online tool designed to give Kentucky families a road map to financial independence. The tool shows families receiving public assistance a way to calculate how much is needed to make ends meet without state and federal aid. The Family Resource Simulator is available to guide individuals and families in understanding how changes in income can affect health care, child care, and other state and federal benefits. The free tool can be accessed at kystats.ky.gov/FRS. It was created by the Kentucky Center for Statistics.
