We recognize that many families are still struggling financially from the pandemic and that the Child Tax Credit is an important opportunity to help them cover their expenses, especially as kids prepare to return to school. We’re engaging with the Treasury and White House to help enroll eligible families in the Child Tax Credit, with a particular focus on families that may not usually file taxes and may be in deep need of financial support. To do that, we are offering training to frontline workers and community organizations that could help sign people up. Experts estimate the new Child Tax Credit has the potential to cut child poverty in half. It provides the largest child tax credit ever and historic relief to the most working families ever ($3,000 per child 6-17 years old and $3,600 per child under 6 years old).
We’d like to follow-up on conversations you had with the White House to work with your members to offer training for those on the frontlines of the work you’re doing so they have the resources and information to spread the word about the Child Tax Credit and so they can directly help people enroll. We have organized an information session on Thursday, September 2 at 11:00am PT for PTA members and school personnel in the targeted outreach areas:
Information session attendees will learn more about the Child Tax Credit and how their school personnel can help members of their community enroll in this historic program. Register in advance for this meeting: https://www.zoomgov.com/meeting/register/vJItd-ytqzouGZ1t89hlrGevJHGrkZfHEUM
