Tax credits can mean significant money in the pockets of hard-working, low-income families.

Greater Twin Cities United Way, on behalf of the Claim It! state-wide partnership, has produced free marketing materials to support outreach to limited-income individuals and families.  For more information or ways to help, view the Claim It Toolkits.
