Coalition of West Virginia Organizations, Parents Rally for Extension of Child Tax Credit

West Virginia MetroNews, World Republic News, Top News – A coalition of West Virginia organizations and those parents and guardians directly impacted by the child tax credit rallied on the state Capitol steps on Friday, one day before more than 30 million families across the country will not receive a monthly payment for the first time since July.

Families received up to $300 per month for children under 6 and up to $250 per month for children ages 6 to 17 as part of the American Rescue Plan. There was an extension on the table included in President Joe Biden’s Build Back Better Act but Congress could not pass it by the end of the year.

On December 20, U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) told CBS Sunday Morning he would not support the legislation after months of negotiating. U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) opposes the framework too.
