Improving Health Outcomes by Connecting to the EITC: A Conversation for Funders

July 26, 2018 2:00 pm Eastern Time

Cosponsored with EITC Funders Network

The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) aims to reduce poverty and support working families by offsetting their federal payroll and income taxes. A small but growing body of research is exploring the relationship between higher income resulting from the tax credit benefits and improved health outcomes. This research has generally focused on maternal and child health outcomes because the vast majority of EITC benefits accrue to families with young children. Funders learned about the importance of EITC in improving health, explored examples of how philanthropy is engaging in this work, and increased cross-sectoral connections between health and economic security funders. Speakers included Kelli Komro of Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University, Padmini Parthasarathy of The California Wellness Foundation, and Ria Pugeda of the Consumer Health Foundation.
