MISSISSIPPI’S 2ND CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT

The expanded and improved Child Tax Credit is an historic change that is a lifeline to the middle class and cuts child poverty. It provides children and their families with additional payments throughout the year that helps them with the costs of food, childcare, diapers, healthcare, clothing, and taxes. Poor, working, and middle class families are receiving the same monthly payments, $250 per month per child, and $300 per month for every young child. All the families in your district will feel more secure and better able to deal with the burdensome expenses that face them weekly and monthly.
