A trip to the farmers market made for a great opportunity to show Head Start children where food comes from so they will feel more connected to the food they eat. Why does this matter? Children are more likely to eat fruits and vegetables when given the opportunity to participate in the shopping experience!

Child Tax Credit Awareness Day

In case you missed it, the White House declared this past Monday Child Tax Credit Awareness Day—ahead of the first round of monthly payments.

There’s money on the table for Head Start families — $3,600 for children under six, to be exact.

Starting July 15, millions of U.S. households will begin receiving the expanded federal benefit included in President Joe Biden's $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan. The American Rescue Plan increased the Child Tax Credit to a record high, providing monthly payments of $300 per child under age 6 and $250 per child aged 6-17 to qualifying families.

Spread the word to Head Start families
If a family filed taxes for 2019 or 2020 or signed up to receive a stimulus check from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), they will begin receiving this tax relief automatically.

If families did not earn enough income to be required to file taxes (under $24,800 for a couple, $18,650 for a head of household, or under $12,400 for a single filer) they must sign up for the Child Tax Credit through the IRS non-filer Sign-up Tool.

Día de Concientización sobre el Crédito Tributario por Hijos

En caso de que se lo haya perdido, la Casa Blanca declaró el lunes pasado el Día de Concientización sobre el Crédito Tributario por Hijos, antes de la primera ronda de pagos mensuales.
Hay dinero sobre la mesa para las familias de Head Start: $ 3,600 para niños menores de seis años, para ser exactos.
A partir del 15 de julio, millones de hogares estadounidenses comenzarán a recibir el beneficio federal ampliado incluido en el Plan de Rescate Estadounidense de $ 1.9 billones del presidente Joe Biden. El Plan de Rescate Estadounidense aumentó el Crédito Tributario por Hijos a un nivel récord, proporcionando pagos mensuales de $ 300 por niño menor de 6 años y $ 250 por niño de 6 a 17 años para las familias que califiquen.

Haga correr la voz a las familias de Head Start
Si una familia presentó impuestos para 2019 o 2020 o se inscribió para recibir un cheque de estímulo del Servicio de Impuestos Internos (IRS), comenzará a recibir esta desgravación fiscal automáticamente.

Si las familias no obtuvieron suficientes ingresos para que se les requiera declarar impuestos (menos de $ 24,800 para una pareja, $ 18,650 para un jefe de familia o menos de $ 12,400 para un solo contribuyente), deben registrarse para el Crédito Tributario por Hijos a través del no contribuyente del IRS. Herramienta de registro.

Starting on July 15th and through the rest of the calendar year, eligible families will receive monthly payments (via direct deposit for 80% of families and through the mail for families who don’t use direct deposit) of $250 for each child between ages 6 and 17 and $300 for each child under age 6.

Families that did not file a 2020 tax return can use this simple online tool to enroll to receive the CTC: https://buff.ly/3gn04Ip
