NYC Offers To Help Families Apply For The Federal Child Tax Credit – Gothamist

New York City families who were not automatically enrolled in the Biden administration’s expanded monthly child tax credit can call 311 to make an appointment for one-on-one help, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Tuesday.

Under an agreement reached under the federal stimulus deal, eligible U.S. families can receive monthly payments of $250 to $300 per child. The program, which has been touted as President Biden’s “biggest anti-poverty plan,” covers all but the richest families—single parents who earn up to $112,500 and married couples with incomes up to $150,000 are eligible for the full benefit. The benefit phases out for high-income households making over $480,000.

All told, New York City families could get an estimated $3 billion through the program, which has been projected as having the potential to cut child poverty in half.
