TANF and EITC: Creating Additional Opportunities for ARRA Funded Subsidized Employment Participants
On January 26th, 2011, at 2:00 pm Eastern, Peer TA hosted a Webinar on TANF and EITC: Creating Additional Opportunities for ARRA Funded Subsidized Employment Participants. Although ARRA funding has ceased, State and local TANF agencies have an opportunity to provide additional support to their subsidized employment participants. Their subsidized employment participants may be eligible for the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), recognized as one of the most successful anti-poverty efforts in U.S. government history. This Webinar discussed how EITC and free tax filing at VITA sites can help TANF participants improve economic self-sufficiency and generate a positive economic return on the local economy; how TANF agencies have an opportunity to provide additional support to participants in ARRA funded or non-funded subsidized employment programs; and low-cost ways to connect participants to free tax preparation and services.
