The EITC Pooled Fund has renewed awards to state organizations in Florida, Idaho, and Pennsylvania to build support for new state EITCs.
The EITC Pooled Fund has renewed three awards in 2022 to state organizations working to help build public support for the creation of new state EITCs.
- The Florida Policy Institute received a one-year renewal award to continue efforts to build support for a state EITC as a viable policy solution to Florida’s regressive tax code.
- The Idaho Center for Fiscal Policy received a one-year renewal award to continue efforts to establish an inclusive state EITC.
- Pennsylvania Budget and Policy Center and We The People PA received a one year renewal award to continue efforts to establish a state EITC in Pennsylvania as part of the broader We The People campaign.
Economic Opportunity Funders and the EITC Funders Network administer and oversee the State EITC Rapid Response Fund, State EITC Campaign Fund, State EITC Policy Development Fund, and the Federal EITC Campaign Fund to advance tax fairness and economic opportunity for low-income workers and families through the promotion, protection and expansion of the federal and state EITCs. The four funds – together known as the EITC Pooled Fund – are guided by an advisory group, supported by five national funders and administered in partnership with the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities and The Hatcher Group.
