Making Work Pay for Iowa's Families

Fass, Sarah; Dinan, Kinsey Alden; Cauthen, Nancy K.; Purmort, Jessica

This report analyzes the effectiveness of Iowa’s “work supports” – such as earned income tax credits, public health insurance, and child care assistance. Work supports can close the gap between low earnings and basic expenses, but working more does not always pay as families lose eligibility for critical supports.
