Charlotte Bruce, Senior Research and Policy Analyst at Children’s HealthWatch and leader of the Healthy Families Tax Credits Coalition: 

“The landmark expansion of the Earned Income Tax Credit and Child and Family Tax Credit, and the care taken to ensure equitable and effective implementation, is a testament to the dedication of our state lawmakers. These leaders have recognized the importance of providing financial relief to families and low wage workers facing rising costs of living in the state. Our coalition extends its gratitude to the legislators, Administration, and community members who have championed these refundable tax credit expansions that uplift our families and support the health and well-being of children and dependents across the Commonwealth.”

Dr. Stephanie Ettinger de Cuba, Executive Director, Children’s HealthWatch: 

“Refundable family tax credits are evidence-based policies for lifting children out of poverty, improving health, and supporting economic mobility. Expanding the Earned Income Tax Credit and Child and Child and Family Tax Credit responds to family financial realities across the Commonwealth and is a critical step towards a healthier and more prosperous state.”
