Researchers from the Catalyst Center at BUSSW’s Center for Innovation in Social Work & Health (CISWH), Appalachian State University, and the Social Policy Institute at Washington University of St. Louis will present important findings from a new report on the impact of the expanded Child Tax Credit (CTC) on families raising children with disabilities – noting the essential support the CTC provided for families who were at higher risk of financial hardship..
The federal Child Tax Credit helps families with qualifying children receive a tax break. It was expanded for the tax years 2021 and 2022 to provide more immediate financial support to families with children during the COVID-19 pandemic. The researchers will discuss the implications of this research on ongoing policy discussion and the future of the CTC.
