About Us
Bridge to Benefits is a multi-state project sponsored by Children’s Defense Fund Midwest Region to improve the well-being of low-income families and individuals by linking them to public work support programs and tax credits. A core component of the project is an online screening tool designed to help families and individuals understand if they are eligible for several public work support programs and the Earned Income Tax Credit.

This site was created through the assistance of North Dakota KIDS COUNT, whose mission is to provide accurate, current data on child well-being in order to inform local and state discussions about how to secure better futures for all of North Dakota's children.  Their web site is located at

The mission of the Children's Defense Fund (CDF) is to Leave No Child Behind and to ensure every child a Healthy Start, a Head Start, a Fair Start, a Safe Start, and a Moral Start in life and successful passage to adulthood with the help of caring families and communities.
