Policy Basics

Economic security programs, which include SNAP, unemployment benefits, and the Earned Income Tax Credit, have a significant impact in reducing poverty and promoting opportunity for millions of low-income people in the U.S.

We educate policymakers, media, and others about economic security program successes. We also analyze tax and spending proposals for their impact on these programs and on the tens of millions of low-income individuals and families that rely on them to make ends meet.
