2008 Tax Credit Outreach Campaign Kit Now Available
The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities announced the availability of the 2008 Tax Credit Outreach Campaign Kit. This resource provides community groups, social service agencies, and employers with the materials and information needed to conduct community outreach efforts promoting the Earned Income Credit (EIC) and the Child Tax Credit (CTC). Throughout the United States, millions of people are working hard to make life better for themselves and their families. Families working in low-wage jobs, including homeless workers, could be missing out on these federal tax benefits worth thousands of dollars. Claiming the credits can help put an eligible worker on the path to securing housing, pursuing higher education, obtaining dependable transportation, covering out-of-pocket health care costs, or paying for quality child care.
In addition to exploring six key elements of an effective Outreach Campaign, the Kit contains full-color posters, flyers, fact sheets, a full stock of outreach strategies and examples of where they are being used successfully, and a guide to finding even more information on the Tax Credit Outreach Campaign website.
