Update on the Stimulus: Why Will Certain Families Receive a $3,600 Child Tax Credit Payout in 2022?

Update on the Stimulus: Why Will Certain Families Receive a $3,600 Child Tax Credit Payout in 2022?

There may not be any new stimulus cheques, but the Child Tax Credit will continue to assist certain American families this year.

With the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan, President Joe Biden signed into law a relief package for families affected by the coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic that gives up to $3,600 in child tax credits for those who qualify.

The credit is being disbursed in two separate stages.

Monthly payments of up to $300 per kid under 6 years old and $250 per child between the ages 6 and 17 between July and December 2021 were made available to eligible families. Residents will be able to claim the remaining half of the grant on their 2021 tax returns.

Families who chose not to receive monthly payments will be able to claim the credit on their 2021 tax return and receive it all at once.

More stimulus checks like the ones given in 2020 have been requested, but Congress has said that it has no intention of doing so.

According to a article, the fourth round of checks is unlikely because of various favorable factors, including high immunization rates, stock market rebound, and improved job data.


Federal cash would be used to offer one-time payments to people in need, including those with children or those who live in multigenerational families as well as domestic abuse survivors, Governor Kathy Hochul stated in September.


There are one-time payments to aid struggling families with diaper costs, food costs for families with children and elderly persons, and housing support for domestic abuse survivors.

Administration of the Pandemic Emergency Assistance Fund is entrusted to the state’s Offices of Temporary and Disabled Assistance and Preventive Services for Domestic Violence.
