Earned Income Tax Credits (EITC) and Health:
Learn more about the role public health can play in non-traditional health interventions
EITC helps eligible low- to moderate-income working people keep more of the money they earn by reducing the taxes they owe. The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) has identified EITC as one of the 14 key evidence-based, community-wide approaches that has evidence reporting positive health impacts, results within five years, and cost effectiveness and/or cost savings as part of the Health Impact in 5 Years Initiative (HI-5) . Health benefits include improved infant and maternal health, such as increased birth weight and reduced risk for death and poor childhood health. Despite these benefits, 1 in 5 people who could get the credit doesn’t claim it. The CDC has partnered with the National Network of Public Health Institutes and the Georgia Health Policy Center to conduct an EITC Policy Implementation Lab, to learn how public health can increase the uptake of EITC through cross-sector collaboration.
Join us to hear from members of the first cohort of the EITC policy implementation lab participants, CDC experts, and external community partners, sharing their knowledge and experience of increasing EITC uptake. We look forward to having you attend this webinar, for additional information please contact Eli Skillen (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Samuel Clasp (email@example.com).
