BDT’s mission and vision are to ensure people needing food, health care, education, and other forms of assistance can receive it efficiently and with dignity. BDT is transforming social benefits access and redefining the experience for millions of people. To drive lasting and equitable change, BDT uses the power of data, technology, and policy to create solutions that help people today while modernizing benefits access for tomorrow.

At BDT, their team of outreach specialists, data scientists and policy analysts work every day to improve the health and financial security for families. Some spend time on the phone taking older adults, veterans, and single mothers through a benefits screening process. Some are software and data engineers who look for efficient ways to comb through data to determine how best to connect people to benefits they’re missing out on. Yet others work closely with public servants to improve government service delivery. To date, BDT has helped people enroll in 800,000 benefits, putting more than $9 billion in critical dollars within people’s reach.

Founded in Philadelphia in 2005, BDT now operates in 12 states to streamline access to benefits for individuals and families, including providing enrollment assistance through benefits centers in Colorado, Maryland, Michigan, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and South Carolina. Having established itself as a social change agent and thought leader in the benefits access sector with a proven impact model, BDT continues to grow and expand its impact.
