Federal tax credits give working families a chance to rise out of poverty – and they have been expanded this year, which makes them more valuable than ever.

However, many families are not informed about programs they are eligible for as well as how to ask for what they need.  That’s where you can help.

The National Women’s Law Center is offering two free webinar trainings to give information and tools needed to help spread the word about tax credits to families.  Webinars will be held October 20 at 1 p.m. and November 10 at 1 p.m. and will be divided into two parts.

Part I: Tax Credits: What working Families Need to Know.

Part II: Tax Credits Outreach: Providers and Advocates.

Each webinar will give you the chance to:

  • Obtain free outreach materials;
  • Connect with local coalitions;
  • Find free tax preparation services in your community;
  • Learn successful techniques for spreading the word about tax credits.

To participate in the webinars, register here.
