The first in a Series of Discussions to Improve Financial Health in DC! Economic Inclusion: Maximizing the Power of the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) Presented by CAAB, a fabulous local organization, assisting DC residents
Tuesday, February 24
9:30am - 1:00pm
Free,  registration required, RSVP here! Includes a Networking Lunch catered by Union Kitchen

Capital Area Asset Builders and Partners (see list below) invite you to join the first in a series of conversations about economic issues affecting DC’s individuals, families and communities and critical tools that can measurably improve financial well-being.

Rich Petersen and Joseph Leitmann-Santa Cruz of Capital Area Asset Builders will lead a discussion of current efforts to maximize the number of DC residents who benefit from the EITC and the partnerships required for success. Kartik Athreya, group vice president, Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond, will also discuss his recent research on the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), with a focus on EITC use in DC.

The EITC is the Nation’s largest income-support program. It is a benefit for working people who have low to moderate income that reduces the amount of tax you owe and may also give you a refund. 

"Four meetings held throughout 2015 will consider current research and best practices about financial access, new transaction products, and other tools for building wealth, aimed at developing a multi-faceted financial literacy and asset building collaboration in DC. Participants can expect robust discussions about cross-sector strategies that can contribute significantly to a more inclusive, equitable DC economy. This Series will also consider access to credit and new financial products for unbanked and under-banked households; credit building and repair; and will culminate in the development of a financial inclusion action plan for DC."
