In addition to the federal EITC, 34 states, Washington DC, Guam, and Puerto Rico have adopted their own EITC to provide additional support for working families.State EITCs provide relief for many working families by pulling them above the poverty line and by increasing the cash income of poor families. New Hampshire does not have a state EITC.1
