For more than 20 years, the Institute for Youth, Education and Families (YEF Institute) at 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 2021, qualifying families with three or more children have the opportunity to receive up to $6,660 with the EITC.

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 tweets and Facebook posts to raise the visibility of the EITC within your community in preparation for EITC Awareness Day on January 29, 2021.
