Mission and Goals

The National EITC Outreach Partnership is a collaboration of national organizations working together to promote the Earned Income Tax Credit through our national offices and our affiliates.

Mission

Increasing family economic success by…

  • Maximizing participation in the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) by promoting outreach and education at the national, state, local, and neighborhood levels;
  • Helping low-moderate income workers by promoting free and low-cost tax preparation as an alternative to fee-based services, products, and loans; and
  • Facilitating the use of the EITC as an entry point for financial education and asset development. 

 

Goals

The National EITC Outreach Partnership will work towards these goals by…

  • Expanding a collaboration of national organizations to:
  • Create a learning community to strengthen each organization’s outreach efforts to members and affiliates;
  • Capture information on partners’ efforts to promote the EITC, free and low-cost tax preparation, and linked asset development strategies; and
  • Coordinate and link technical assistance efforts to local affiliates.
  • Reaching out to other national organizations to encourage them to become engaged and mobilize their networks in support of EITC outreach, free and low-cost tax preparation, and linkages to asset development.
  • Helping community stakeholders strengthen and expand their local coalitions by providing nationally-developed materials or leveraging the direct assistance of national organizations.
  • Providing a national-level model of the collaborative approach we are encouraging affiliates to use at the local level.
  • Sharing the perspectives of local stakeholders and partnerships to inform the national dialogue on using the tax code to build family economic success.
