Child Tax Credit: What You Need to Know
Most Philadelphia families with children qualify for a new monthly payment of $250 or $300 per child starting in July. This new benefit is part of the American Rescue Plan and could mean hundreds or thousands of dollars in direct payments to help pay for rent, utility bills, diapers, clothes, groceries, or anything else your family needs.
The good news is it’s really easy to receive! All families need to do is file their taxes, even if they don’t normally file or have no income. Most Philadelphia families can file for free with Campaign for Working Families, a safe and trusted partner of the City of Philadelphia.
