Tell Senators: Pass a Strong Child Tax Credit to Help Women and Their Families! 


The expanded Child Tax Credit (CTC) supports the basic needs of families with children – from food to utilities to childcare and more; this policy has proven to be one of the most effective ways to reduce poverty.

On February 7, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Tax Relief for American Families and Workers Act by a decisive bipartisan vote of 357-70. This legislation is now pending in the Senate and includes a bipartisan proposal to expand and improve the Child Tax Credit (CTC), providing much-needed financial help to an estimated 16 million children in families with low incomes from all races, ethnicities, and geographical locations, including the most marginalized. In the first year alone, the proposal would benefit roughly 1 in 3 Black and Latino children and more than one-quarter of all children under 17 living in rural areas.

Join us in telling the Senate to listen to the public and pass a strong Child Tax Credit that can help those whose lives the YWCA is dedicated to improving, including women, girls, people of color, and other marginalized communities.
