Parents Begin Receiving Federal Covid Tax Credit Payments This Week

West Virginia Public Broadcasting – About 39 million families across the U.S. — including 346,000 children in West Virginia — are receiving monthly child payments this week from the U.S. Department of Treasury as a part of the federal COVID-19 relief plan. Read the full article.

Families will get about $3,000 per child each month. The money comes from a temporary expansion of the child tax credit — part of President Biden’s COVID relief package enacted in March. The Child Tax Credit is one of the largest spending measures Congress has passed that goes directly to parents.

These payments could reduce child poverty by 43 percent in West Virginia, according to an analysis by the Center on Budget and Policy.
