The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities (CBPP) is one of the nation’s leading nonprofits working on public policy issues affecting low-income families and individuals. It has a national reputation for conducting rigorous research and analysis, developing policy ideas and strategies, shaping a broad array of policy debates at the federal and state levels, and influencing policy outcomes. It works on budget and tax policy, health care, and a range of programs important to low-income people. The Center’s funding comes from private foundations and individuals.
The Center's Get It Back Campaign is a national outreach effort to promote the Earned Income Tax Credit, the Child Tax Credit, and free tax filing assistance. These tax benefits provide critical work supports for employees earning low to moderate wages. The campaign supports a network of organizations to conduct local tax credit outreach activities by providing training, outreach materials, and other tools that help connect eligible workers to the tax credits and free tax help. Partners include national, state, and community-based organizations, human services providers, state and local government agencies, businesses, universities, financial institutions, and more. The outreach intern helps maintain communication with these partner groups and others that would like to become involved in the campaign. They will track the use of creative outreach strategies, help develop new materials and blog content, and research policies and procedures that affect eligible individuals’ ability to obtain tax benefits they have earned.
