The expanded Child Tax Credit, included in the American Rescue Plan in 2021, lifted millions of children out of poverty by significantly increasing financial support for eligible families, providing advanced monthly payments, so families could have immediate and consistent ability to cover essential expenses, and expanding eligibility, so more families could benefit.
It expired in 2022, and the child poverty rate doubled.
It’s time for Congress to act by reinstating the expanded Child Tax Credit! Take action by contacting your Members of Congress to ask them to reinstate the expanded Child Tax Credit to support our children and families!
Congress has an obligation to ensure America’s children and youth can thrive- and we know this works. Ask them to support expansion of the Child Tax Credit now!
