PROTECT AND STRENGTHEN THE EARNED INCOME TAX CREDIT & CHILD TAX CREDIT

Our community benefits when working people can turn their financial tightrope into a stable pathway to success. A key component of success in building financial stability is ensuring that hardworking families can have access to the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and Child Tax Credit (CTC), two proven tax credits that have been successful in moving Americans from welfare to work.  The EITC and CTC lifted more than 9 million people – including 5 million children – out of poverty in 2013.
