Tax credits in the form of monthly payments are being considered to help feed, clothe, and house children in low-income families. The proferred benefit in the current aid package from the president’s administration would expire at the end of 2021.

Chair of the House Appropriations Committee Representative Rosa DeLauro of Connecticut introduced legislation with Representatives Suzan DelBene of Washington and Ritchie Torres of New York this week that would permanently expand the child tax credit and make it fully refundable. The bill would also make the credits available in U.S. territories.

“We build the architecture for the future,” said Representative DeLauro “That has been underlying so that we’re not just throwing money at a situation, but we are looking at enduring, transformational change.”
