Many families are struggling financially and the Child Tax Credit is an opportunity to help them cover their expenses, especially as kids return to school. HUD is engaging with the Treasury and the White House to help enroll eligible families in the Child Tax Credit, with a particular focus on families that may not usually file taxes and may be in need of financial support. To do that, HUD is offering the opportunity to participate in a 1 hour training to help you and your teams learn more about the Child Tax Credit and learn how you can help those in your community enroll. The session will provide housing counseling agencies an overview of the Child Tax Credit and walk through the enrollment portal to show everyone how they can help members of their community enroll in this historic Child Tax Credit. Experts estimate the new Child Tax Credit has the potential to cut child poverty in half. It provides the largest child tax credit ever and historic relief to the most working families ever ($3,000 per child 6-17 years old and $3,600 per child under 6 years old).
