About the EITC Outreach Campaign

For more than 20 years, the Campaign, which includes community organizations, employers, social service programs, and government agencies, has promoted the Earned Income Credit (EIC), the Child Tax Credit (CTC) and free tax filing assistance for lower- and moderate-income workers. Each year millions of eligible workers risk missing out on these important federal tax benefits because they do not know they qualify, do not know how to claim the credits, or do not know where to find free tax filing assistance. Your outreach efforts can help ensure that eligible workers can receive the tax credits they’ve earned.

This website provides the information and resources you need to develop a vibrant Tax Credit Outreach Campaign. For questions or assistance with developing your outreach strategy, please contact us at eickit@cbpp.org or 202-408-1080.
