Of those who received the first monthly #ChildTaxCredit payment in July: - Roughly half reported using it to pay for food for their family - 1 in 4 spent some of their CTC on clothing. The CTC is helping families put food on the table & meet the needs of the next generation.
Parents are using their #ChildTaxCredit payments to pay for basics for their kids. The share of families reporting that they sometimes or often did not have enough to eat in the past week dropped to the lowest % since the pandemic began.
After just 1 month, it's already clear the #ChildTaxCredit is having a real impact on the lives of America’s children. Parents reported having less trouble covering the costs of food & other household expenses after receiving their July CTC payment. census.gov/library/storie…
Thanks to the American Rescue Plan’s expansion of the #ChildTaxCredit, tens of millions of families are automatically receiving monthly payments of $250 or $300 per child. Over the next hour we’ll answer a few FAQs about the child tax credit. Read more at childtaxcredit.gov.
