New Report on Hardship Makes Urgent Case to Enhance the CT EITC and Create CT Child Tax Credit

Two working adults don’t always achieve financial stability for #ALICECHILDREN. Per #UnitedForALICE, in 2019, 21% of CT’s children living in a home with two working adults were still in households that couldn’t afford basics. Learn more: http://UnitedForALICE.org/Focus-Children

ALICE IN FOCUS SERIES
Children in Financial Hardship
The number of children growing up in financial hardship in the U.S. is drastically higher than is widely reported. According to the outdated Federal Poverty Level, 16% of children in the U.S. lived in poverty in 2019. Yet United For ALICE data shows that another 33% — twice as many — were also growing up in hardship, in households that earned above the poverty level but less than what is costs to afford the basics. These households are ALICE: Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed. To view a more detailed view of children growing up in financial hardship, visit https://unitedforalice.org/Focus-Children.
