The historic expansion of the Child Tax Credit under the Biden Administration’s American Rescue Plan offers the promise of dramatically reducing child poverty in the United States. In this webinar we examine the expanded Child Tax Credit and related components of the American Rescue Plan, hear about projections for the policy’s potential impact on poverty, and look at the challenges of delivering the credit to families who need it the most.
