AFSCME members made an enormous difference for working people everywhere when we fought for the passage of President Biden’s American Rescue Plan, which is already helping rebuild the economy and protecting the public services we all provide.
One huge benefit of the plan is a child tax credit that will go to most American families, with payments going out starting this month. Want to find out how much of a credit you’re getting?
Between direct payments to Americans, help fighting the pandemic and funding the front lines to the tune of $350 billion, the American Rescue Plan is bringing our country back after one of the deadliest crises in our history.
AFSCME members played a key role in helping get the plan passed into law, fighting to make sure the law included funds so that states, cities, towns, schools and hospitals had the resources they needed to keep our communities safe, healthy and strong.
The child tax credit included in the American Rescue Plan will help many AFSCME families as payments begin this summer. If you’d like to see how much you’ll be getting from the tax credit, just use our handy calculator.
