Making "Work Supports" Work

The National Center for Children in Poverty is conducting a project called Making “Work Supports” Work. The project is designed to promote policies to support low-wage workers in the workplace. Employment wages supplemented by government work support policies can help support families, and include the Earned Income Tax Credit, child care subsidies, health insurance, food stamps, and housing assistance. This brief provides an overview of the project, and offers data on how work supports can make a difference for low-income families.
