Launched in 2012, the EITC Pooled Fund has awarded more than $7 million to 42 networks, helping to advance economic opportunity for low-income workers and their families across the country through the creation and expansion of tax credits. Economic Opportunity Funders and the EITC Funders Network administer and oversee the State EITC Rapid Response, Campaign and Policy Development Fund and the Federal EITC Campaign Fund to advance tax fairness and economic opportunity for low-income workers and families through the promotion, protection and expansion of the federal and state EITC, CTC and other tax credits. The four funds – together known as the EITC Pooled Fund – are guided by an advisory group, supported by five national funders and administered by EOF and the EITC Funders Network in partnership with the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities and The Hatcher Group.
To date, $7,263,000 has been awarded to 36 state networks and 6 national networks: $1,648,000 in state EITC rapid response funds, $3,015,000 in state EITC campaign funds, $1,865,000 in state EITC policy development funds and $735,000 in federal EITC campaign funds.
