Paycheck Plus: Making Work Pay for Low-Income Workers

The Paycheck Plus demonstration, developed with the New York City Center for Economic Opportunity and a consortium of funders and partners, is testing an expanded Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) for low-income single workers without dependent children in New York City and Atlanta. This eight-minute video profiles the lives of six New Yorkers who are participating in Paycheck Plus and explains what MDRC hopes to learn from a random assignment study of the initiative.
