The EITC Rapid Response Fund (EITC RRF) was established in 2012 as an invitation only fund and focuses on quick infusions of support to help an existing effort overcome a communications challenge or opportunity. Awards are made on a rolling basis and range from $15,000-$30,000. The RRF is guided by an advisory group and administered by EOF and the EITC Funders Network in partnership with the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities and The Hatcher Group.
About the EITC
The EITC was established in 1975 as the nation’s most significant policy reform to reduce poverty and incentivize work for low income Americans. Current EITC-related policy efforts aim to maintain and expand the EITC so that it continues to benefit working families.
