Monthly Payments for Families with Kids: The American Rescue Plan has increased the amount of the 2021 Child Tax Credit to support families with children. The full benefit of the Child Tax Credit is now $300 per month per child under age 6 and $250 for each child age 6 to 17, or $3,000 to $3,600 per child for nearly all working families.

Did you file taxes in the last 2 years? Then you don’t have to do anything to get the money you’re already owed!

Eligibility: Most families, even those with little to no income, can receive the full amount. If you are a single parent making less than $112,500 or a married couple making less than $150,000—and have children under age 18 who will live with you for more than half of 2021—you are likely eligible for the full benefit. These benefits do not affect your eligibility for other federal benefits like SNAP. Learn more and check out resources to help you fill out your form at ChildTaxCredit.gov.

Motivational Interviewing — Informed Supervision Webinar: On July 14 from 11:30 a.m. – 12:45 p.m., explore ways in which the Motivational Interviewing spirit, core skills, and four processes can enhance supervision.

Whether you’re experienced, new, or not yet a supervisor, you are invited to explore what MI-informed supervision is, why it matters, and how to apply specific strategies to help staff thrive in their work.
