The Coalition on Human Needs is calling for action to urge Sen. Cantwell to support expanding the Earned-Income Tax Credit and the Child Tax Credit. 

These programs help working families and individuals provide for basic needs, lifting 8.9 million people out of poverty in 2018. Sen. Cantwell is supporting a major tax credit for developers to create affordable housing, but she is stopping there in her support of low income people.

Call Sen. Cantwell’s DC office at 206-224-3441 between now and Monday, October 21 with this message: “Any tax package that passes this year must include an expansion of the Earned Income Tax Credit and the Child Tax Credit.” Ask the receptionist to share the message with Sen. Cantwell and her lead staff Lara Muldoon.
