WOODBOURNE, NY - SEPTEMBER 20: Children eat breakfast at the federally-funded Head Start Program school on September 20, 2012 in Woodbourne, New York. The school provides early education, nutrition and health services to 311 children from birth through age 5 from low-income families in Sullivan County, one of the poorest counties in the state of New York. The children receive 2/3 of their daily nutritional needs through meals, which include breakfast, lunch and snack, that are prepared at the school and served family-style in classrooms. The county Head Start program was expanded with a $1 million grant from President Obama's 2009 stimulus bill, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

Starting in July, roughly 39-million American families will start receiving monthly child tax credit payments. The payments are covered by the massive COVID stimulus bill that was passed in March.

The bill raised the maximum payments families can receive per child this year, from two thousand to 36-hundred dollars. The White House hopes the payments will help significantly reduce child poverty. President Biden released a statement and called it “vital tax relief to hard-working families.”

President Biden is cheering the pending distribution. Speaking at the White House, Biden said it will give ordinary families a break. The payments will be sent automatically – taxpayers won’t need to take any action.
