ARP Background

The ARP provides historic relief to the most working families and individuals ever. The CTC has already provided payments to the families of over 61 million children (up to $3,600 per child this year) and the expanded EITC will reach as many as 17 million more workers (with up to $1,500). The Biden Administration is intent on ensuring that all Americans eligible for these expanded tax credits receive these funds by filing their taxes.

Many families that are newly eligible for these benefits also rely on other government benefits. Outreach from state and local agencies and other community partners is one of the most effective ways to get families enrolled. A simple text or email to benefits recipients can help families access millions of dollars. The goal is for governments to reach all potentially eligible individuals and to work with community organizations to help spread the word about how to access these impactful tax benefits. Organizations, including Code for America, American Public Human Services Organization, and Economic Security Project, are also offering support to state and local governments on outreach to beneficiaries.
