Family Resource Simulator

The Family Resource Simulator illustrates the impact of "work supports"—such as earned income tax credits and child care assistance—on the budget of a hypothetical family. It helps families identify where 'cliff effects' occur as their income increases.

Basic Needs Budget Calculator

The Basic Needs Budget Calculator shows how much it takes for families to afford minimum daily necessities without work supports or other social benefit programs. It also allows you to create customized results by changing assumptions about basic family expenses. The Basic Needs Budget Calculator is derived from the Family Resource Simulator.
