Are Black and Latine Families with Babies Feeling Relief from the Child Tax Credit? (Final Report, March 2023)
Bathia, D., Suggs, M., Sims, J, & Iruka, I. U.
In this report, we discuss the experiences of Black and Latine families with low income with babies to assess how the pandemic has impacted them and whether CTC has provided any relief. We find that the CTC had a positive impact for families’ economic and general wellbeing, but this economic strategy needs to be sustained for longer periods and refined to better meet the unique needs of Black and Latine families.
