Echo Michael's points on the child tax credit. Happy to share data from Humanity Forward's initial survey of CTC recipients. In this summary report, we highlight key findings from the first wave of the study, focusing specifically on how families plan to use CTC payments and their early perceptions of the expanded credit. The full report, examining the impacts of the CTC on families relative to a comparison group of households that are ineligible for the CTC, is forthcoming in early 2022! https://a.storyblok.com/f/84073/x/b296e09e24/humanity-forward-report-9-17-1.pdf

There is also excellent research from the Urban Institute on the significant reductions in poverty that would result from the permanent expansion of the CTC. https://www.urban.org/urban-wire/increasing-child-tax-credit-could-drastically-reduce-child-poverty#:~:text=In%202019%2C%20Urban%20Institute%20researchers%20analyzed%20a%20child,would%20reduce%20child%20poverty%20by%20nearly%2040%20percent.

Big thank you to Mayor Tubbs, Supervisor Mitchell as the GI movement leaders here and AFN/SCG for this solution-focused forum! The City of West Hollywood is excited to launch the first GI pilot for LGBTQIA older adults (50 years+) living on a low income. Hoping to add to the narratives mentioned here.
