Montebello, CA: Today, the Mexican American Opportunity Foundation hosted Congresswoman Linda Sanchez and National Council of La Raza President & CEO Janet Murguia
to call attention to two important tax credits that assist all low-income working Americans: The Earned Income Tax Credit and the Child Care Tax Credit.
Ms. Murguia spoke about how these two federal tax credits were helping to lift low-income working Americans out of poverty. Yet, she continued, they are being threatened with elimination because under current law, Congress needs to re-authorize them ever 2 to 3 years.
For decades, the Mexican American Opportunity Foundation has recognized the selfless contributions of individuals who share MAOF’s vision and values at its annual Aztec Awards Gala. MAOF invites you and your company to join us as we continue this tradition.

A high school freshman slumped in his chair and made no eye contact with the teacher. He wouldn’t talk in class, and certainly didn’t tell anyone what was going on in his life.
After several months of trying to connect with him, a City Year educator finally had a breakthrough when the student began to tear up during a hallway conversation. “There are no magic words that turn a student’s life around,” the educator said. “It takes a steady drumbeat of support and encouragement.”
About 1.2 million students drop out of high school every year, according to the National Center for Education Statistics. The ninth grader, who made it through the school year, will not be one of them due to the relentless work of City Year.
Community organizations come together to increase older adult SNAP enrollment
Los Angeles, CA (July 1, 2015) – When it comes to eating a healthy diet, millions of Americans 65 and over face a double whammy: their income is fixed, and their spending on food is consuming a larger portion of their budget.
Nationally, adults aged 65+ have an average annual income of $41,000, and they spend nearly $5,200—or more than 12%—on food. Their friends just 10 years younger have a greater income (averaging $63,000 annually), and they spend less (10.6%) on groceries.
Mexican American Opportunity Foundation (MAOF), in partnership with the National Council on Aging (NCOA), has joined a nationwide effort to support these older adults by helping them access the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).
