Public Awareness Campaigns
Parent Leadership Month February
California Earned Income Tax Credit
National Parent Leadership Month is a time to raise awareness of the important role that parents play not only in the lives of their children but also in their communities. The OCAP is happy to share resources to help recognize and celebrate parents in your community!
The OCAP is excited to share resources about the first California Earned Income Tax Credit. This is a new refundable tax credit that puts money back in the pockets of California’s working families and individuals this tax season. If you owe taxes, the Cal EITC reduces the amount of taxes you might owe and may allow you a refund when you file your taxes. If you do not owe taxes, the Cal EITC tax credit will provide you with a tax refund when you file your taxes. We encourage everyone to become involved in this public awareness effort by sharing this information about Cal EITC.
Child Abuse Prevention Month April
National Child Abuse Prevention Month is a time to acknowledge the importance of families and communities working together to prevent child abuse and neglect, and to promote the social and emotional well-being of children and families. During the month of April and throughout the year, communities are encouraged to share child abuse and neglect prevention awareness strategies and activities and promote prevention across the country.
