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:
Helps low- and moderate-income families keep food on the table.
Can be worth more than $5,500 annually.
Protects the health of expecting and new mothers and children under 5.
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.
EITC: Refunds as large as $8,463 | CTC: Can be worth as much as $1,000 per child
HOW IS THIS CAMPAIGN DIFFERENT?
We're convening a diverse group of public and private organizations to reach those in need.
We're using cutting-edge data and analytics to target eligible, low- and moderate-income New Yorkers.
We will create a poverty-fighting initiative that can serve as a playbook for cities across the nation.
