The State EITC Campaign Fund has awarded $740,000 to organizations in six states to help create, defend, expand, or modernize state EITCs during the upcoming legislative season.
New in 2021: Given the challenges presented to low-income families because of COVID and the economic downtown, this year the State EITC Campaign Fund expanded its support to include efforts focused on elevating state EITCs, CTCs or other tax credits as part of a larger economic security campaign that includes other emergency cash support policies (such as stimulus, emergency cash for front-line workers or immigrant families, but not Unemployment Insurance). Awards were also increased to up to $125,000 where at least $50,000 would be to support grassroots organizations for community mobilization work in recognition of the critical role community mobilization can play and the value of partnering with grassroots organizations, which are often most representative of constituencies of color in states.

The State EITC Campaign Fund was established in 2017 and focuses on supporting a year-long effort in which a window of opportunity to promote or defend a state EITC seems urgent. Awards are made through an invitation-only RFP process and range from $30,000-$125,000.
