For decades, the federal Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) has helped countless families, becoming one of the best tools for reducing poverty.
Millions of other low-income workers living on the margins are not eligible simply because of their age, even though many young people are on their own and many older people still have to work to make ends meet.
Our solution: The credit needs an update that reflects our current workforce. We need to permanently eliminate age restrictions that prevent young and older workers from claiming the EITC.
Tell your members of Congress to join our campaign to Fix the EITC so that millions of younger and older people are able to access one of the most successful anti-poverty programs in America.
