KEY: These figures demonstrate that monetary development does not ensure diminishments in destitutionSlide 33
(2) Government approaches that lessen destitution (and why)Slide 34
The Earned Income Tax Credit Refundable duty credit for working , low-wage citizens with youngsters (single and wedded) [Much littler credit for childless] No credit if no family profit EITC acts to supplement income. M aximum credit for 2009: $3043 for one-kid families $5028 for families with two or more kids Total expense in 2008 of the EITC is $40 b. contrasted with $25 b. for TANF and $38 b. for sustenance stamps.Slide 35
KEY: Maximum EITC credit assists families with nearing neediness edge!Slide 36
How the EITC diminishes neediness Key configuration highlight of EITC (and what recognizes it from customary wage bolster projects) is that qualification requires earned pay. The EITC exchanges salary to low wage families with kids WHILE empowering work. The liberality of the EITC expanded significantly with expense changes in 1986, 1990, and 1993.Slide 37

Illustrating how EITC supports work and diminishes destitutionSlide 39
So, the EITC can possibly build wages and decrease neediness through two channels: The EITC speaks to an increment in salary for the family The EITC gives impetuses to enter work, and consequently expand profit which expands family pay.Slide 40
Census appraisals of destitution decrease because of EITC, 2003Slide 41
BUT â¦ the accomplishment of the EITC is not measured by authority neediness insights Remember our meaning of destitution? Destitution depends on PRE-TAX family salary EITC works through the assessment frameworkSlide 42
(3) Government Assistance: Why U.S. money welfare projects are unrealistic to influence needinessSlide 43
Cash Welfare Programs (TANF) Income bolster (welfare) projects are unrealistic to influence destitution rates for two reasons: Benefit levels are low, unrealistic to build a householdâs salary over the neediness line. Advantages are focused on those out of work; in this way disheartening work as opposed to empowering it. [This does not mean the project is not essential or valuable. Maybe that it basically ought not influence neediness rates.]Slide 44

One could utilize TANF to decrease destitution, yet financing would need to be around four times the present subsidizingSlide 47
What we do know, on the other hand, is that the blend of welfare change and the development of the EITC prompted huge increments in work among female-headed families in the late 1990s. These increments in vocation can possibly lessen neediness.Slide 48
Percent of Women Working ( by Marital Status and Children) On the eve of welfare change and EITC builds, much consideration is given to the low livelihood rates of single parents.Slide 49
