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 presentation 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 presenters Cary Gladstone of Granite United Way and Barbara Heggie of 603 Legal Aid shared insights into efforts to increase program participation in New Hampshire.
