Financial Stability Impact

Numerous studies show that even a small increase in household earnings can change the likely trajectory for an entire family from a perpetual struggle in poverty to increased academic success, lifetime earnings, and quality of life. Increasing access to the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) can provide this lift, and is hailed as the nation’s single greatest antipoverty strategy.

By working with an array of partners, we can increase the number of qualified families who gain the EITC and put thousands of dollars more in their pocket and hundreds of thousands of dollars into their neighborhoods. Our United Way partners across the Baytown and Chambers County communities can develop a more integrated system for our community that would increase access to affordable housing and ensure deeper job skills and employability.
