The 2017 Legislative Session is over and JRLC helped to make some important progress:

4 Made it easier for families accessing the Minnesota Family Investment Program (MFIP) to choose to marry. 
Our bill to address the marriage disincentive in the MFIP Program passed with broad bi-partisan support.

4 Expanded the Working Family Credit to adults ages 21-25 without dependents.  These adults will now
be eligible to receive this valuable tax credit.

4 Defeated a reduction in the Renter’s Credit.  This tax credit, used by seniors, people who are disabled, and low-income Minnesotans, remains unchanged.

4 For the first time in 31 years, an MFIP cash assistance increase was included in the HHS bill sent to the Governor.  Unfortunately, no increase was included in the final bill.  

Your calls, emails, meetings with legislators, and generous donations made this possible.
We so appreciate all that you do!  

Please let us know what is happening in your community. We’d love to visit!
