4/4: CISWH Researchers & Colleagues Share Findings on the Impact of the Expanded Child Tax Credit on Families Raising Children with Disabilities

Wednesday, March 29, 2023

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.
