The Earned Income Tax Credit works by making work pay better. It’s one of the few programs that actually puts money directly back into the pockets of working families who need it most.

The people who earn the EITC are fellow Iowans who work in areas like health care, agriculture, education, and food services. They’re the Iowans who often work the hardest, yet are struggling to get by.

That’s why Working Hero Iowa is working to ensure that every eligible Iowan gets the cash refund they’ve earned, and advocating for policies that help all Americans afford their basic needs.
