Family-centered coaching is an emerging approach to working with low-income families that involves the whole family. Growing from a recognition that the interests and needs of the whole family affect whether a child enters school on grade level, and whether a parent can find and keep a job that supports the family, family-centered coaching is working to undo, and redo, how we work with families.

Recent proposals in the House and Senate (for example, the Grow American Incomes Now Act) focus on amplifying the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC)—a refundable tax credit for low-income workers—to compensate for growing wage inequity. We find that the share of EITC filers who are families with children is especially high in the poorest counties (those counties outlined in black on Map 1), including many places throughout the South. Many of these counties are nonmetropolitan counties (see Map 2), suggesting that the EITC can provide safety net support in places where other social services may be less available. While an EITC expansion could be costly, existing research shows that its effects on poverty reduction, employment, and both children's health and achievement are considerable, and therefore, worth considering in the scheme of ongoing broad tax revisions.
This report presents the major findings of an evaluation on the effectiveness of the 2017-18 CFLeads Family Economic Security Action Alliance (FES Action Alliance). The program, offered by CFLeads, enlisted the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston and The Democracy Collaborative as content partners and was supported by the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation and W.K. Kellogg Foundation. The FES Action Alliance brought together six community foundations from around the country to increase each team's knowledge of family economic security, build peerconnections, seed potential collaborations, and make tangible progress toward addressing a family economic security challenge in the participants' respective communities. Staff from the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston and The Democracy Collaborative served as coaches for the individual teams, content providers, and facilitators along with CFLeads staff. This summary highlights the strongest findings from surveys and interviews used to evaluate the FES Action Alliance process and its outcomes.
