Earned Income Tax Credit and Child Tax Credit: Impacts and Access in New Hampshire

This webinar was held on Wednesday, March 16, from 11:00am to 12:00pm.

Expansions to the Child Tax Credit (CTC) for tax year 2021, if made permanent, could reduce child poverty in New Hampshire by 39 percent, and the expanded CTC would benefit about 85 percent of all Granite State children. Similarly, key expansions to the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) could help reduce poverty, improve economic mobility, and support the health and well-being of individuals and families.

This webinar presented an opportunity to learn more about the EITC and the CTC and their contributions to building a more equitable and inclusive economic recovery in New Hampshire.

Policy Analyst Mike Polizzotti reviewed the EITC and CTC programs and highlighted findings from NHFPI’s recent report, Expansions of Earned Income Tax Credit and Child Tax Credit in New Hampshire. Guest speakers, Cary Gladstone of Granite United Way and Barbara Heggie of 603 Legal Aid, shared insights into current efforts to increase program participation in New Hampshire. A moderated panel discussion was followed by an audience question-and-answer session.
