The Cliff Effect occurs when low-income families in Colorado lose "work support" benefits (earned income tax credits, child care assistance, etc) as their earnings increase above benefit thresholds but before they've achieved self-sufficiency.
This paradox creates a disincentive for families to earn more, diminishes their economic security and creates a cycle of dependency on support benefits. Learn about the research and policy recommendations from the Colorado Women's Foundation and the Colorado Center on Law and Policy for improving family self-sufficiency in the state.
