In late July, our Policy Director, Dede Hill, along with colleagues Ron Deutsch, Executive Director of the Fiscal Policy Institute, and Pete Nabozny, Policy Director of The Children’s Agenda, presented for the United Way of NYS on the role New York’s working family tax credits play in reducing child poverty, and suggesting reforms to make these credits even more effective.  Participating in the United Way conference is just one of the many ways we are collaborating with United Way around efforts to strengthen refundable tax credits – and is the next chapter in a long history of collaborating on this issue.  In fact, in the 1990s, United Way of NYS and Schuyler Center together led the successful effort to enact New York’s trailblazing Earned Income Tax Credit law!
