Outreach Helps Connect Workers to the EITC

While celebrating today’s 10th annual Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) Awareness Day (as we’ve noted), CBPP continues to lead a national effort to promote the EITC, Child Tax Credit, and free tax help.  In our Get It Back Campaign, we partner with thousands of community organizations, employers, human service providers, government agencies, and many others to connect eligible workers to the EITC, free tax help, and other tax benefits.
