The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) is the nation’s most effective anti-poverty program for working families. Last year, we helped increase the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) by a modest amount. We want to continue making progress by increasing the state EITC from 12.5% to 20% of the federal credit.

What can you do to help?

Call your state Senator and Representative and advocate for RI workers by following these steps:

  1. Look up your Senator and Representative by entering your address
  2. Find the phone number for your State Senator and State Representative.
  3. Call your legislators and ask them to support (H7347 & S2156) which would increase the state EITC. Click here for key points to make during your call.

Also if you haven’t already done so, you can sign an online postcard supporting an increase to the state EITC.
