This means that some 27 million kids will only get partial help, or none at all. But it’s not too late to help. The Senate can still support and prioritize extending the expanded Child Tax Credit. But they need to hear from you, and they need to hear from you today.

If the CTC reverts to its previous form, it will provide the least help to the children who need it most. Wealthier parents will still receive the credit; it’s those with the lowest incomes who will no longer qualify because they don’t meet the minimum income requirements.

And it stood to have a disproportionate impact on Black and Latino children, communities who, previously, were left behind from receiving the full benefit. The updates to the Child Tax Credit made significant strides in addressing the inequities in the structure of the benefit.

The expanded Child Tax Credit has been a game-changer. Census data shows that it lifted 3.8 million children over the poverty line and had an immediate impact on hunger, cutting the number of families reporting not having enough to eat by nearly one-third.

This couldn’t happen at a worse time, as harsh weather and COVID-related school closures are causing fresh economic havoc for families and kids.

Tomorrow, as many as 35 million families will not receive their monthly payment and millions no longer qualify for the credit at all because efforts to extend the expanded #ChildTaxCredit (CTC) have stalled in Congress.

Millions of kids are still waiting for the Senate to vote on Build Back Better. While they wait, families will no longer receive their monthly #ChildTaxCredit check, which has helped so many pay for necessities like food. Tell Congress kids need help NOW:

Last year the expanded #ChildTaxCredit made a huge impact fighting child hunger and poverty. But this starting this month, help is not on the way. Plans to extend this benefit have stalled. Please urge the Senate to continue fighting for kids.

For the last 5 months, millions of families have received a monthly #ChildTaxCredit benefit, helping them to make ends meet. But this month that help isn't coming as the Senate has failed to extend this critical resource. Learn more and take action:
