Once a search is performed, information about the programs in the search results is pulled into filters to allow the Seeker to narrow their search results. This information is pulled in dynamically, meaning at least one program in the search results will match that filter.
Personal are details about who a program serves.
For example, if you start searching for "emergency food" in your zip code, your social service platform (powered by Aunt Bertha) could list some programs that specifically serve veterans and families with young children, so those filters appear in your Personal Filters list. Filtering by both would show you any programs that specialize in serving either group.
Program Filters are details about a program such as:
- Contact method
In the Program Filters section, the contact settings are represented by the header, "I want to": Visit, Call, Email, Apply or Schedule Online. If you choose "visit," a radius filter will appear so you can see programs with service office within a certain distance.
Hours are pulled in based on the office hours in the program card.
Under Cost, you can filter whether you want to see free or reduced cost programs.
Language is populated by the “language” field under the description tab. The Aunt Bertha Data Team will update that information when they research the program. Programs that have claimed can update the language as well.
Eligibility pulls from the eligibility section on the program card, specifically when there is a calculation for federal poverty guidelines (FPIL). For example, “Gross income must not exceed 130% of federal poverty guidelines.”
You can enter a family size and income. When you filter, it will calculate which programs the family may be eligible for based on the family’s size and income.
