[CLOSED] Urgent Action: Tax Credits for Vulnerable Victims at Risk

Congress needs to hear from you to prevent cuts to victims’ services

Congress is considering legislation to extend more than 50 tax breaks primarily for corporations. Please join NNEDV in urging them to retain key provisions of the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and Child Tax Credit (CTC). If these credits expire, some 50 million Americans will lose all or part of their tax credits and fall deeper into poverty.

Economic resources are a critical tool for survivors living in poverty to maintain their safety, and these programs are critical to helping survivors move from short-term to long-term security. EITC or CTC refunds often provide survivors with the means to leave an abusive partner, or help them become self-sufficient after leaving an abuser.

Please send a message to your Members of Congress now urging them to make these credits permanent, and avoid harming families.
