Some factors are … families are eligible for, but not receiving the Earned Income Tax Credit; families are challenged to get to places of employment, retail business and health or other services due to distances and the lack of reliable transportation; and employed mothers struggle with the demands of both employment and parenthood including finding available, affordable, safe
care for their children."]
