Democrats Introduce $3,000 Child Benefit in Biden Relief Package


What Happened:

  • On Monday, House Democrats introduced legislation that would give millions of families $3,000 per child as part of Biden's $1.9 Trillion Covid-19 Relief Bill.

  • Rep. Richard Neal, chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, introduced the enhanced Child Tax Credit bill.

  • Said Neal, "The pandemic is driving families deeper...into poverty...We are making the Child Tax Credit more generous and...this money is going to be the difference in a roof over someone's head or food on their table."

  • The legislation provides $3,600 per child under the age of six and $3,000 per child aged six through seventeen. Single parents earning up to $75,000 annually and couples earning up to $150,000 would qualify for the benefit.

  • The benefit would also be paid out on a monthly basis for one year rather than in one lump sum. If passed, payments would begin in July.
