The Coalition to Make EIC Work

The Coalition to Make EIC Work is a project of the Illinois Cost-of-Living Refund Coalition. We are a coalition of unions, community organizations, and consumer protection groups that have joined together to advocate for the expansion of our state's Earned Income Credit. Convened by Economic Security for Illinois, we will be organizing and advocating for this policy which so many working families in Illinois need right now.
