ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN

In January 2017, Robin Hood, in partnership with other public, corporate and non-profit organizations will launch a bold, poverty-fighting campaign to unlock as much as $500 million in government funds for struggling New Yorkers. The campaign aims to help the 800,000 people who aren't receiving the benefits for which they're eligible. The funds come from the following programs:

BENEFIT:
Can be worth more than $5,500 annually.



Protects the health of expecting and new mothers and children under 5.

BENEFIT:
Pays for food and formula potentially worth more than $1,800 annually.



EITC: Tax credit and refund for low- and moderate-income workers (those making up to $53,505 a year).

CTC: Tax credit and refund for families to offset the expenses of raising children.

BENEFIT:
EITC: Refunds as large as $8,463  |  CTC: Can be worth as much as $1,000 per child
