In 2023, states across the country won big in the form of tax credits for workers and families. With smart policies and strategic organizing campaigns we won:

  • Minnesota, Oregon, and Maryland created new permanent Child Tax Credits
  • Hawaii is doubling the amount residents get in their Earned Income Tax Credit and Michigan quintupled their state’s EITC. 
  • New Jersey and New Mexico doubled the amount given to families in their Child Tax Credit
  • Vermont expanded eligibility to tax credits to ALL immigrant residents
  • New York expanded their Child Tax Credit to include kids under 4
  • and more.

This year’s wins meant that states across the country will be giving an additional $2 billion dollars to 3.5 million households across 17 states — and counting. When the federal government fails us, states step up!

But these wins didn’t happen out of nowhere. How did policy experts and organizers win these campaigns and how do we win bigger for hard working families across the country? Join us in Atlanta in December to learn from our successes and challenges, and strategize how we can win more money for more people in 2024 and beyond!
