The CDF SPROUT (Student Poverty Reduction OUTreach) program provides students with training and specific projects to find, explain and help all eligible families receive the public benefits that can lift children out of poverty, including EITC, SCHIP, Medicaid, Child Tax Credits and Food Stamps, among others. The CDF SPROUT program is implemented with National Student Partnerships, the nation's only student-driven volunteer service organization that links individuals in need with critical personal, social and business resources to help them obtain and maintain regular employment.
