Tell the Senate: Enhance the Child Tax Credit!

The House of Representatives recently passed a bipartisan tax bill that enhances the Child Tax Credit (CTC), a vital piece in our work to lift children out of poverty! The CTC is now in the hands of the Senate, needs to take up the bill and pass it with 60 votes. Research shows that families have used this money to cover the cost of housing, food, transportation, and child care. Children thrive when their parents and caregivers have the resources necessary to help all family members succeed.

Proverbs 3:27 teaches us, “Do not withhold good from those who deserve it, when it is in your power to act.” In a time where many are just making it through their day-to-day, we have the power to tell our senators, “Do not withhold the Child Tax Credit from families and children in need.” 

In one year, the new proposal to expand the Child Tax Credit would allow:

  • Roughly 16 million children in families with low incomes to benefit from the expansion!

  • As many as 400,000 children (about half the population of Delaware) to rise above the poverty line!

  • Children of all races and ethnicities to thrive, especially groups where parents and caregivers are overrepresented in low-paid jobs due to discrimination and other barriers to opportunity.

Let’s keep the momentum going. Urge your senator to enhance the CTC today!
