We include our voice among the many organizations advocating for increasing access to affordable child care and increasing the rates paid for child care providers as part of the May 2021 Budget Revision.
The California Earned Income Tax Credit (CalEITC) and Young Child Tax Credit (YCTC) are proven, effective tools to help move working families out of poverty and up the economic ladder. Together with the federal EITC, these credits can put thousands of dollars in the pockets of working families. For the first time in 2021, tax filers with an Individual Tax Identification Number (ITIN) are eligible for the CalEITC and YCTC credits, meaning outreach to immigrant communities is especially important this year. More information and resources are available below. Help spread the word about EITC, CalEITC, and YCTC to families in our community.
