The temporary expansions to the Child Tax Credit (CTC) have dramatically reduced the share of children experiencing poverty, especially for Black and Latinx kids. The expansions have also lowered food insecurity rates, helped families afford necessities, and reduced financial stress for parents. But since the monthly CTC payments have ended—at least for now—many are left feeling uncertain.
Since the introduction of the first monthly Child Tax Credit payment in July 2021, a continuous stream of research has emerged tracking the impact of this new policy on the lives of children and their families. This roundup compiles the range of publicly available information on what we know so far about who has received it, how families are using it, and how families have fared since the monthly payments began.
It’s not too late for families to take advantage of up to $3,600 per child afforded by the Child Tax Credit – all they need to do is file their 2021 taxes. These new social media graphics from NCAP can help your agency spread the word about this important benefit and help parents get their money.
