Support Thriving Families and Increase Equitable Access to the Improved Child Tax Credit
This event was held on September 9, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT
The Asset Funders Network, in partnership with Philanthropy New York, will host a discussion on strategies funders can use now to support the economic well being of millions of households, and especially children, through expansions to the Child Tax Credit and the Earned Income Tax Credit, and how their investments can make lasting change.
The American Rescue Plan of 2021 offers an historic opportunity to support the economic well being of millions of households especially children through expansions to the Child Tax Credit and the Earned Income Tax Credit. Importantly, these temporary expansions, which are landing in bank accounts now, help ease cash flow and improve the peace of mind and health outcomes of families. Yet, many, particularly households headed by women of color, who would receive the greatest income boost may not be able to easily access this tax credit. Funders have an important role to play in the short term to support access to the credit and in the longer term to support permanent expansion of these credits. Doing so offers an opportunity to make the case for unrestricted cash and to fundamentally improve the freedom of parents to help their families thrive.
Please join AFN and Philanthropy New York to discuss strategies for action now and learn how your investments now can make lasting change.
