Enhance the earned income tax credit; create a child tax credit to support CT families, boost economy

Nearly four out of 10 Connecticut families struggle every month to make ends meet – to put food on the table, keep a car running, pay the rent, afford care for their small children while they work at the jobs available to them in our state. The United Ways of Connecticut support restoration of the state earned income tax credit and creation a state child tax credit as do-able, high-impact steps to help our families – and boost our economy, at the same time.
