The Federal EITC Campaign Fund was established in 2020 to support work on the federal EITC and CTC, including work on tax-based benefits in the context of federal stimulus and relief packages.
Two national networks have received awards from the Federal EITC Campaign Fund:
- RESULTS has been awarded $75,000 to identify and train grassroots advocate leaders, prioritizing those with personal experiences of living in poverty and in key states, to educate federal lawmakers about poverty in their communities, building support to protect and expand refundable tax credits such as the Earned Income Tax Credit and Child Tax Credit.
- NETWORK Advocates for Catholic Social Justice has been awarded $75,000 to engage its activist network and national partner organizations in activist and policymaker education on tax-based benefits in COVID-19 relief packages and expanding the EITC/CTC as one of our government’s most effective anti-poverty programs.
The Federal EITC Campaign Fund is one of four funds administered by the EITC Pooled Fund.
