PBS NewsHour Profiles Paycheck Plus Demonstration of an Enhanced EITC for Single Adults


On Sunday, February 7, the PBS NewsHour featured a nine-minute story, “The Bipartisan Idea That Gives a Tax Boost to Childless Workers,” which concentrated on MDRC’s Paycheck Plus Demonstration of an enhanced Earned Income Tax Credit for single adults without dependent children in New York City. Paycheck Plus is sponsored by the New York City Center for Economic Opportunity, with additional support from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the Robin Hood Foundation, and the Laura and John Arnold Foundation. The Food Bank for New York City is the project’s operations partner.

MDRC has just launched a second Paycheck Plus site in Atlanta in collaboration with the United Way of Greater Atlanta.
