Fall Meeting: EOF holds a second meeting each year on emerging topics of interest identified by our voluntary Steering Committee and membership. In 2022, we will hold a Post-Election Briefing on November 30-December 1 in Washington, DC.
Funder Networks: Time-limited working groups offer the opportunity for information sharing and learning as well as the coordination and alignment of investments. We will convene a new funder strategy room in the Fall on scenario and action planning in preparation for the political transition after the 2022 midterm elections.
EITC Pooled Fund: Launched in 2012, the EITC Pooled Fund supports rapid response, campaign and policy development efforts to help build public support for the federal and state EITCs, other tax credits and cash support for struggling families. In 2022, the Fund will also support an update of the Program Participation Dashboard (providing state-by-state data on participants in the EITC, SNAP, Medicaid and CHIP and SSI), and explore opportunities to EITC policy and grassroots organizing funders together to share strategies, questions and learnings.
Law & Social Policy Legacy Award: Established in 2020, a $10,000 award will be given annually, through 2030 to recognize organizations defending and advocating for low-wage workers’ rights. Northwest Workers’ Justice Project (NWJP) has been named the recipient of EOF’s 2022 Law & Social Policy Legacy Award. Our next call for nominations will open on September 15, 2022.
