Just in one year, Broward County’s working families received up to $514,000 in Earned Income Tax Credits (EITC).
In 2013, these credits lifted more than 9.4 million people – including 5 million children – out of poverty.
Every year, a group of funders and community nonprofit organizations work hard to ensure that all these dollars go back into the pockets of our taxpaying working families.(Thank you to long-term community investors: Children’s Services Council of Broward County and United Way of Broward County).
This year, we have the opportunity to permanently expand EITC and the Child Tax Credit. Contact your congressional representatives today and ask them to make the EITC and Child Credit improvements permanent.
