RESULTS advocates for tax policies that are grounded in equity and help people move out of poverty. This includes tools like the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), a refundable federal income tax credit for low-income working individuals and families.
Racial wealth inequality today has roots dating back to slavery and is manifested in everything from disparities in education access, entrepreneurship and even health outcomes. While there are many ideas about what it will take to close the racial wealth gap, it is generally unclear which ideas would effectively eliminate the racial wealth divide.
As this unjust tax bill becomes law, we’re already seeing it used to justify deep cuts to health care, nutrition, and more for millions of low-income Americans. But this fight isn’t over.

With its first federal budget proposal, the White House has taken aim at families struggling to put food on the table, kids around the world seeking an education, and millions more people facing poverty. Proposing massive funding cuts to effective anti-poverty programs, the budget jeopardizes the futures of people across the country and around the world. Now Congress takes up the process.
It falls to Congress to reject dangerous White House proposal.
In February, House Speaker Paul Ryan formed a Task Force on Poverty, Opportunity, and Upward Mobility to help combat poverty in the United States. As members of Congress on both sides of the aisle are taking interest in addressing poverty, what they decide could make a huge difference in the lives of low-income Americans – for better or for worse.
