Understanding the Advanced Child Tax Credit

The Child Tax Credit in the American Rescue Plan provides the largest Child Tax Credit and historic relief to the most working families ever – and as of July 15th, most families are automatically receiving monthly payments of $250 or $300 per child without having to take any action. The Child Tax Credit is meant to help all families succeed but navigating the portal and understanding the details can be confusing. That is why YWCA Metropolitan Phoenix is here to walk you through all the details and help you understand how your family can benefit from the Advanced CTC!
