Timely “self sufficiency” calculator wins NPower award

A free online “self sufficiency” calculator that helps people figure out their living expenses and financial situation won the NPower Seattle Innovation Award at the organization’s luncheon today.

The awards recognize technology developed by non-profits in the Puget Sound region. Judges were from event sponsors Microsoft, Accenture and Avanade.

The calculator – at www.thecalculator.org – was developed by the Workforce Development Council. It helps people develop goals, evaluate job offers and see if they’re eligible for public assistance programs.
