3.7 million children have fallen back into poverty just in the past few months. Prices are rising all around families, and one of the best tools we had last year to support ourselves is now gone – the monthly Child Tax Credit. 

Inflation is at a 40 year high. It looms over our families with gas prices and grocery prices making it difficult to bring home dinner, let alone drive to our jobs in the first place.

The monthly Child Tax Credit (CTC), a vital program begun with the American Rescue Plan Act last year, has not been renewed in Congress as of January 2022. 

Parents must raise their voices and ask our Senators to reach a deal on a CTC extension. A deal that has been awaiting their action for months; all the while families struggle.

Reports show inflation is costing American households about $296 per month. That’s almost exactly what some parents were receiving from the CTC.

Last year, the monthly CTC helped me raise my son as a single parent. I could afford our $240 lot with the $250 CTC payments. I was able to start my own digital media business, simply because I did not have to stress about affording the roof over my son’s head.

Help parents all over the country afford childcare and work more; cover the rising cost of living; and spend locally, to stimulate small-business growth. Help renew the monthly CTC.

This is an emergency that our leaders must address, but I need your help to make our call for action reach Congress. Please sign this petition and share with fellow parents, friends and family! We cannot leave 3.7 million American children behind.
