Claim Your Money PHL

Fiscal Sponsorship

Community organizations that serve the lowest income Philadelphians are invited to apply for a grant opportunity to help families claim the Child Tax Credit and Earned Income Tax Credit.

About

Community organizations that serve low-income Philadelphians are invited to apply for a grant opportunity to support the Claim Your Money PHL campaign to help families claim the federal Child Tax Credit (CTC) and Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC).

The CTC gives eligible parents or guardians up to $2,000 for each child aged 16 and younger.  The maximum EITC refund is $6,557, depending on income and household size. Tax refunds like these are significant poverty fighting tools and put money back in the pockets of low-income Philadelphians to spend on what they need.

That’s why the Scattergood Foundation has teamed up with the City of Philadelphia’s Office of Community Empowerment and Opportunity (CEO) to make grants available to community groups for grassroots activities aimed at reaching the lowest income Philadelphia parents or guardians. Funds can be used to educate residents and help them claim the payments.  Applications are due December 1st for work to be conducted from mid-January-June 30, 2023.

Click here to submit an application.  Once in the grantmaking system select ‘Claim Your Money PHL Grants’ application to apply.

An optional briefing session will be held for potential applicants on Thursday, November 3rd at 3pm. You must register in advance for this briefing by clicking here. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

Program Goals

Educate

the community about the Earned Income Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit, and how to claim them.

Connect

individuals to trusted organizations that can help residents claim the credits for free, such as the Campaign for Working Families and other providers of Volunteer Income Tax Assistance.

Mobilize

Philadelphians to urge Washington to make the expanded CTC and EITC permanent, including by sharing their personal stories of how the tax credits have helped their families.

Who Should Apply?

Philadelphia-based community organizations with 501(c)(3) status, or a fiscal sponsor, that already serve very low-income communities or groups that are at risk of not receiving the EITC or CTC are encouraged to apply.

We encourage applications from organizations whose staff, board, and/or volunteers include representation from the communities this project aims to reach.
