2016 State and Federal EITC Policy Forecast --
The EITC Funders Network Annual Policy Webinar


The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and the Child Tax Credit (CTC) are widely recognized as critical income supports for millions of low-income families. In 2015, Congress made permanent vital provisions of the federal EITC and while battles to save state EITCs continue to be waged in some states, an unprecedented number of state legislatures advanced local EITC legislation last year. 

What’s ahead in 2016? Join us for a webinar to learn about the federal and state landscape, and hear from two state campaigns -- Mississippi and Minnesota --  working to build and strengthen state EITCs. During the webinar, we will tackle the following questions:  

  • What were the accomplishments of 2015 and where are the remaining gaps?
  • How would an expanded EITC for single childless workers impact poverty in the US?  
  • What EITC developments are percolating at the state level?  How are state campaigns unfolding in such distinct landscapes as Minnesota and Mississippi?
  • How are campaigns thinking about EITC advocacy through a racial equity lens?
