Lobby Day for Working Families
Time & Location
About the Event
The Working Families Tax Credit (HB 1411/SB 1786) is legislation that would create a program at the state level to grant additional funds to Florida's working families who already qualify under the Federal Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC). Studies have shown that the Federal EITC is the most effective anti-poverty program, and expanding it at the state level would increase the benefit to Florida's working families.
We're getting on a bus to Tallahassee to speak with our legislators and ask that they support this legislation, which would lift many working families out of poverty here in the Sunshine State. The ride and meals are free! The bus leaves from Allendale UMC, 3803 Haines Road N., St. Petersburg, FL 33703.
