CCUSA, USCCB call for strengthened Child Tax Credit

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) and Catholic Charities USA (CCUSA) have long supported the Child Tax Credit while urging its improvement. On January 9, USCCB and CCUSA wrote to renew our request to Congress to work in a bipartisan manner to include a strengthened Child Tax Credit in any upcoming tax package. In upholding the dignity of all, the Catholic Church is committed to building an authentically life-affirming society that prioritizes the well-being of families, and we call on Congress to adopt that same approach. Strengthening the Child Tax Credit is one clear way to respond to this call.
