As we gear up for the launch of the Working Families Tax Credit in 2023, it’s crucial that direct service providers, community members, and other partners who work with people eligible for the Working Families Tax Credit know where to go to get resources. So we’re excited to share the new coalition website, which will serve as an information hub for everything related to the Working Families Tax Credit. Some highlights include:
- Upcoming events, including a Train the Trainer workshop series
- Resources, including posters, toolkits, and other materials (still in development!)
- Space to learn more about the Working Families Tax Credit, and answer any common questions
- A place to sign up for updates from the coalition
The Working Families Tax Credit Coalition was behind the historic bipartisan passage of the Working Families Tax Credit, which will provide $300-$1,200 to low- to moderate-income Washingtonians, starting in 2023! We are a coalition of organizations spanning economic and racial justice groups, immigrant rights advocates, labor, direct service providers, domestic violence advocates, and more. The credit will have an outsized positive impact for Black, Indigenous and People of Color communities in Washington, and it is an important step forward to make Washington’s upside-down tax code more just.
Editor’s note: WCAAP advocated for passage of the Working Families Tax Credit. Special thanks to WCAAP members Tom Long and Ellie Graham for spearheading our work with the coalition.
