For more than 20 years, the National League of Cities has supported municipal leaders in advancing their work to help more residents in their communities claim the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) — an important financial boost for families.

In 2024, qualifying families with three or more children can receive up to $7,430 via the EITC and $2,000 per child via the Child Tax Credit.

Our EITC Awareness Day Toolkit for local leaders includes a draft press release, a template for emails to partners, a template for a city proclamation, and sample social media posts to raise the visibility of the EITC within your community in preparation for EITC Awareness Day on January 26, 2024.
