The CTC is a critical engine that has long demonstrated its capability to positively impact people living under the Federal Poverty Line. The ARP’s expansion of resources and eligibilities shows the Biden administration’s intent to find a solution to the growing number of adults and children living in financial hardship. Through permanent expansion, policymakers in Washington can not only lift millions of children from poverty but transform CTC into one of the most effective tools addressing children in need in the United States.
