Online event
This event has passed.

The Child Tax Credit and Earned Income Tax Credit have been effective in reducing poverty and providing crucial financial assistance for millions of American families. Despite decades of bipartisan support, administrative challenges—including underwhelming take-up rates, improper payments, and an ineffective audit process—have hampered their effectiveness. As deliberations continue over structural reforms to these programs, policymakers also have an opportunity to make administrative improvements to tackle these challenges.

BPC and the National Academy of Public Administration host this conversation with policy experts and stakeholders to highlight issues with CTC and EITC and discuss bipartisan intergovernmental solutions that could improve their administration for American families and workers.
