State Tax Laws in Arkansas

Location Arkansas
Organization Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families; Children’s HealthWatch

Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families, in partnership with Children’s HealthWatch, is conducting an HIA to examine how state tax laws, including earned income and child tax credits, affect household income, and, in turn, families’ abilities to access healthy food and pay for utilities and safe housing. The team will engage a broad set of stakeholders—includingfamilies, hospitals, community development financial institutions, and state and local decision-makers—to highlight the connections between economic policies and family and community health across the state, which, as of 2017, ranks 46th in child health.
