Earn it. Keep it. Save it.

EITC forum 003-small I can’t believe that our Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) meeting for employers at CitySpace had more than 70 in attendance. Those who came were interested in helping their employees keep more of their hard earned dollars in their pockets. That is why the Thomas Jefferson Area EITC Coalition’s motto is Earn It. Keep it. Save It.

Many thanks to Rebecca Caldwell and Janine Williams of the UVA Community Credit Union for all their hard work in coordinating and EITC forum 008-smallpromoting this material and also for the wonderful toolkit of materials they provided each attendee.

Reimi Okuyama, our EITC Coordinator has been tethered to the phone all week. There was a front page story in The Daily Progress on Monday about the work of the coalition, and then both NBC29 and CBS19 ran stories Thursday morning featuring both Janine and Reimi being interviewed. At one point I walked past her desk and there were Reimi_1-small 15 different color post-it notes with phone calls for her to return!
