Child Tax Credit

As a part of pandemic relief, there is a new Child Tax Credit that is worth $3,000 per year, per child ages 6-17 and $3,600 per year, per child under 6 years old for families making $150k/year or less. In addition, this includes families with no income at all (for which the “regular” tax credit is not available).

These funds will be paid out in regular payments  directly to families. However, for families to be eligible, they MUST file their 2020 taxes. This is designed specifically to address child poverty and is expected to lower childhood poverty by at least 45%.

Please share this information widely with families participating in your programs.

Families may be eligible for $50 per month off of their high speed internet. Please widely share the link below!
