Press Conference on First Day of Child Tax Credit Monthly Payments – Reaching Up to 90% of Children in Austin Area

Austin, T.X. – This Thursday, July 15, U.S. Representative Lloyd Doggett (D-TX), Foundation Communities, eligible parents and children, and other community leaders will mark the first day of advanced Child Tax Credit (CTC) payments, which are up to $300 per month per child. Congressman Doggett will explain who can expect payments automatically and how much—as well as how parents who do not normally file a tax return can ensure they do not miss out on these important payments.

Child Tax Credit Monthly Payments are a cornerstone of the American Rescue Plan, which Rep. Doggett helped pass into law. Experts say that fully implementing the credit could cut child poverty in half. While 90% of American families are eligible for the credit, many are not aware of application requirements.

Rep. Doggett will share how people who do not normally file a tax return (or did not register to receive stimulus checks) can get free help with Foundation Communities to file their application for the CTC advance payments. Parents who are receiving this credit will share the impact it will have on their family and how critical it is for families who do not normally file a tax return to apply immediately. 

What:       Press conference sharing the latest on the Child Tax Credit—payments of up to $300/child staring July 15—and sharing resources for non-filers to make sure they don’t miss out on the payments

When:      10 AM CST, this Thursday, July 15, 2021

Where:     Foundation Communities Prosper Center South, 2900 S IH-35, Austin, TX 78704
