Earned Income Tax Credit

stand up for working americans

One June 13th, United Way advocates will storm Capitol Hill to advocate for key tax priorities including expanding the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC).
The EITC lifts Americans out of poverty by providing a tax credit for families and people in our community who work, but still struggle to make ends meet.
The EITC helps about 25 million working Americans afford the basic necessities such as groceries, rent, transportation, child care and healthcare.
While the EITC is one of the most effective tools we have to help working families keep their heads above water, it excludes millions of workers not raising kids at home and young people ages 21 to 24.
Help amplify our impact by advocating with us.
