As the debate over President Biden's sweeping “build back better” agenda continues in Washington, West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin hasn't been shy about laying out his demands, as Democratic leadership in the House and Senate and the White House bend over backwards to garner his and Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema's votes for reconciliation bill that's been moving through Congress. High on Senator Manchin's list: adding so-called work requirements to the newly expanded Child Tax Credit. In a September appearance on CNN's State of the Union, he derided parents who don't work outside the home, asking: “Don't you think, if we're going to help the children, that people should make some effort?”  Asked what he thought of the West Virginia Senator's remarks, Child Tax Credit champion and Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown responded as aptly as he did succinctly, declaring: “I think raising children is work.” Of course, so-called “work requirements”—the policy of using survival benefits as a tool to compel paid work outside the home—is not a new idea. Indeed they were the centerpiece of Donald Trump's agenda to dismantle the safety net for the better part of his one-term presidency.  But the notion of so-called work requirements dates back a lot farther than Trump—and even a lot farther back than Ronald Reagan's racist myth of the welfare queen. Indeed, as a recent report from the Center of the Study of Social Policy documents in painstaking depth, the long and sordid history of work requirements in U.S. income policy has roots that trace back centuries to the slave trade. So given the Senator from West Virginia's continued interest in keeping work requirements alive, instead of turning the page on this kind of policymaking-by-dog-whistle and ensuring that all families have what they need to thrive—we at Off-Kilter thought it might be helpful to take a deep dive into the racist roots of work requirements. Joining Rebecca for this week's show: Aisha Nyandoro, chief executive officer of Springboard to Opportunity and architect of the Magnolia Mother's Trust; Jeremie Greer, cofounder and co-executive director of Liberation in a Generation; and Elisa Minoff, senior policy analyst at the Center for the Study of Social Policy and the author of “The Racist Roots of Work Requirements.”  Dig into Elisa Minoff's full report, “The Racist Roots of Work Requirements” For more on the history and consequences of the 1996 welfare law, check out “TANF Policies Reflect Racist Legacy of Cash Assistance” by Ife Floyd Read “Work Requirements Would Undermine the CTC's Impacts on Racial and Economic Justice” by the Children's Defense Fund's Emma Mehrabi

Child Tax Credit Series Bonus ContentCongressman Jim McGovern (D-Massachusetts) has made it his mission to end childhood hunger. As part of Add Passion and Stir's series covering the expansions to the Child Tax Credit, we spoke with McGovern about his advocacy for legislation that addresses the root causes of hunger and poverty in America. Elected in 1996, the year the Child Tax Credit was created, McGovern has seen all variations of the credit from inside Congress. For him, the expansion of the Child Tax Credit to provide benefits to an additional 39 million households is a critical component of a cross-governmental strategy to end poverty.McGovern says, “This [bill] is about our values. These are people's lives…The reason why this investment is so significant is because we have underinvested in people for decades.” In this full interview with McGovern, we hear how he is working with leaders in and out of government to finally make the conversation about hunger something that we address head on. “Hunger is a political condition. We have the food, resources, knowledge, infrastructure; we have everything to end it but we haven't had the political will,” McGovern concludes.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

As many as 13 million children in the United States live in food insecure homes, meaning that these households don't have enough food for every family member to lead a healthy life. Hunger is a problem that most often affects children from low-income families. And today we're going to discuss the Child Tax Credit aimed at helping low-income families and the historic increases in the credit made through the American Rescue Plan in 2021. Our guest today is Billy Shore, the founder and executive chair of Share Our Strength, a nonprofit working to solve problems of hunger and poverty, both in the United States and around the world. Share Our Strength is also the parent organization for the well-known No Kid Hungry campaign, the national policy, advocacy, outreach, and research effort to improve childhood nutrition, support school meals, and provide resources to schools, food banks, and community groups working to end hunger.   Interview Summary   So the child tax credit has been around for years, but this year there was some significant, albeit temporary, changes that made it a powerful tool in fighting poverty. Could you quickly walk our listeners through what these changes have been?   The most important change for The Child Tax Credit is that Congress and the Biden administration made it fully refundable - which is a way of saying that even if you don't earn enough money to pay taxes, you still get a check from the government somewhere between $3000.00 and $3360.00 per child. And one of the ironies of the Child Tax Credit in the past has been that many of the families who need it the most might be the least likely to get it if they weren't earning enough to pay taxes or file taxes. Now there's a portal that's been developed with the Internal Revenue Service and a nonprofit called Code for America that we worked very closely with, where even if you haven't earned any money, you can file for the Child Tax Credit. And you can use those funds for food, for education supplies, for healthcare, for really whatever you need it for, for your kids. It's estimated that it can bring 5 million children above the poverty line, which would really be absolutely transformational.   That's a remarkable impact this could have. So just out of curiosity, are there programs or means for letting people who might be eligible for this benefit know that it exists providing help in using the portal and doing things like that?   That's a great question because there's an all out effort beginning right now, not just to raise awareness of the Child Tax Credit, because a lot of families are not aware of this new benefit, but to also make it more accessible. Many families are going to need technical assistance as to how to access the portal called Get Child Tax Credit, getctc.org. And then when they're on the site, they might need assistance then as well. So there's a major effort. Think of this almost as like a political campaign. One of the things that Share Our Strength is doing right now as a pilot is building out a field operation in two states to see how this would go in Mississippi and in Maine. And we've got regional directors and field staff. And just as you would have a staff on the ground to register people to vote and to make sure they get to the polls, we've got a staff on the ground that is going to make sure people are aware of the tax credit. They get to their Community Centers or the sites or the volunteer tax assistance sites that they need to get to so that they could actually file. And then as we learn from those two pilots, we'll spread that into all 50 states.   Given that you and your organization are working to address food insecurity, why put efforts behind legislation that would address poverty rather than just food insecurity itself, providing more food for people or more benefits that provide food? Why work on poverty overall?   You know, one of the things that we've learned over the last 35 years of doing this work, and I would say, honestly, it took us too long to learn it, but we've really come to the conclusion that it takes more than food to fight hunger. And so, you know, we all have a reflex when we think about people being hungry, how do we get them food? And we think in terms of emergency food assistance and food banks and soup kitchens and programs like the school meals programs or the SNAP food stamp program, but to really end hunger in a sustainable way, it does take more than food to fight hunger.   Families have to have the financial stability. You know, when you think about hunger as a symptom of a set of deeper problems, in some ways it's a problem in and of itself, but in many ways it's a symptom of deeper problems of poverty and inequity, racism. When you think about all the reasons that families are struggling today, you realize that we've got to do more than just provide food. And so the Child Tax Credit is the first and the largest opportunity that's come along, probably in a generation or more, to really give families the unrestricted resources they need. And one of the things that we've learned just from the July tax credit payments, so just as recently as a few months ago, we found out that 47% of the families who received the tax credit used it to buy food for their families. So we know that the impact is direct. Other families, of course, used it for some of the other things I mentioned, educational supplies, healthcare, that type of thing. But food is going to be one of the biggest allocations that the child tax credit receives.   That makes perfect sense. You mentioned just how many families could be affected by this. Families now living in poverty who would have some benefit from this program. And you've also talked about the issue of how the child tax credit could be important in building equity. Could you speak to that?   As you know, disproportionate numbers of black and Hispanic and Asian American Pacific Islander, indigenous children, experience hunger and the Child Tax Credit has a direct impact. It also has a disproportionate impact, in a positive way, on them. So it would cut poverty by 52% for black children, by 45% for Hispanic children, by 62% for indigenous children. There are of course, a lot of white families, the majority of families who received the Child Tax Credit are likely to be white and many will receive it automatically if they've been filing taxes. But again, often the families that need it the most are going to be the hardest to reach. So we think it'll have a powerful impact in establishing some equity in a sustainable basis, particularly for black and brown kids.   So you mentioned that many families will receive the Child Tax Credit automatically, but there will be several million families who qualify for the tax credit, but may not be signed up. What can they do?   There's a new portal that's been created. It's in English and Spanish. As I mentioned, it's been created by a terrific nonprofit called Code For America. And if you go to http://www.getctc.org or we have a direct portal, http://nokidhungry.org/getctc. CTC  stands for Child Tax Credit. You immediately get to a portal where you could follow the information and get a check sent to you or deposited. So it's really going to take a massive effort to make this happen.   The current law has this Child Tax Credit in place until the end of this year, until December of 2021. Congress is now debating whether to extend it or to make it permanent. I think most practically, politically, it's probably not going to be made permanent as much as we'd like to see that. It'll probably get extended for three to five years. And it will take that amount of time to make sure that all the families that need it become aware of it and get the assistance they need. So we've got to have a long-term view of this, but you know, you and I are having this conversation in mid-September, and there was a headline today in The New York Times. Just to give you a sense of how important something like this can be, front page of The New York Times and many other papers was that as a result of the assistance programs of the last nine months, including the stimulus payments and so forth, 8.5 million Americans were lifted out of poverty. And that's just remarkable. The poverty rate went from 11.8% to 9.1%. The lowest it's been since they've been measuring poverty in this country. So it's just a great proof point that these programs work. That the social safety net, when it's resourced, when it's applied the way it's supposed to be and maintained the way it's supposed to be, the social safety net really has the intended impact. It lifts people out of poverty and that's good for the economy and it's good for all of us.   Thank goodness the program is working like it is and thank goodness people are paying attention. And the article you mentioned is one way to make that more visible. So let's follow up on this last issue you raised, that this is put in place temporarily, and it's only in effect through December. Obviously, it would be great if this were to continue, what do you think needs to happen to make sure that it continues? And what sort of political actions might take place or data could be collected or other things that could be influential in seeing that this continues?   I think the most important thing is going to be for Congress to hear from Americans, that they want this Child Tax Credit to continue. That they're seeing the impact of it in their own families, in their own communities that they want to live in a country that lifts kids out of poverty. We tend not to be as good at that as other industrialized nations. And, you know, Congress of course, is so evenly divided right now. The Senate completely evenly divided. The House, I think speaker Pelosi, can only afford to lose three democratic votes to get this passed. So this is one of those cases where literally every voice counts and letting your member of Congress know that this Child Tax Credit is going to be important in your community is absolutely vital. You know, when people hear about tax credits, sometimes your eyes kind of glaze over. People don't really know a lot about the tax system or necessarily want to be involved with the Internal Revenue Service, with the IRS, and I get that. But this is one of the big positives to come out of it. And if it does become extended, I think it puts it on a path to permanence and imagine being the first generation of Americans to live in a country where we don't have child poverty at record levels. That would be just an incredible legacy for our entire generation.   Bio   Billy Shore is the founder and executive chair of Share Our Strength, the parent organization for the No Kid Hungry campaign.

Passed in 1997, The Child Tax Credit, known as the CTC, provides an end of year tax credit to families with children under 16. In March 2021, as part of the $1.9 trillion coronavirus aid package, the American Rescue Plan, the CTC saw its largest ever increase — making the credit available for children 17 and under, increasing the amount per child ages 6-17 from $2,000 to $3,000 and from $2,000 to $3,600 for children under six, and changing it to a monthly payment instead of annual lump sum. Experts estimate these changes could lift as many as 5 million kids out of poverty.In this first episode of a series on the CTC, Add Passion and Stir welcomes Reps. Jim McGovern (D-MA) and Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) and Senator Michael Bennet (D-CO), and other thought leaders in a conversation about the origin and evolution of this legislation. What was the original concept? How has it worked and not worked? How did the CTC's expansion come to pass? And how are broader policy changes, such as an historic 25% increase to monthly SNAP benefits, working together to fight hunger and poverty in America.

Inside the Fight to Make America's New Child Allowance Permanent

This week, millions of families across the United States are receiving their third monthly child allowance payment as implementation of the expanded Child Tax Credit (CTC) authorized by the American Rescue Plan Act earlier this year continues. Meanwhile, as “Build Back Better” legislation continues to come together in Congress, with key House committees marking up their portions of the legislation this week, the future of America's first guaranteed minimum income for families with children—a policy estimated to cut child poverty in half in the United States—is at the heart of the ongoing debate. While not the permanent extension community advocates are calling for, the version of the bill currently moving through the House would extend the life of America's first-ever child allowance by four years to give the expanded CTC time to take root—while making at least one key feature permanent: the credit's so-called “full refundability” (read: full availability for the lowest-income families). So, for this week's Off-Kilter, Rebecca sat down with two dear friends and colleagues who have been leading the way on the fight to extend the child allowance beyond its first year—while also working to ensure the program's full implementation: Indi Dutta Gupta, co-executive director of the Georgetown Center on Poverty and Inequality, and Dorian Warren, co-president of Community Change and one of the co-chairs of the Economic Security Project. But first: Rebecca talks with Representative Rosa DeLauro—the Connecticut Congresswoman who's spent the past nearly two decades in Congress leading the crusade for what she calls a “Social Security for children”—for a look at how we got here and why she set out to expand the CTC all the way back in 2003, long before the CTC became cool.

The child tax credit, received by more than thirty-five million families, isn't entirely new. But the way it's distributed is almost a revolution in American politics: instead of showing up once a year at tax time, the government also provides money ahead of time, in predictable monthly payments. Wide-scale, direct cash payments are anathema to Reagan-era austerity economics. Is this policy the first sign that that consensus may be coming to an end? David Remnick talks with Senator Michael Bennet, of Colorado, who campaigned for the Presidency on this issue in 2020, and is now fighting to extend the tax credits indefinitely.  For Sheelah Kolhatkar, who covers economics and business, the child tax credit can be seen as a kind of scale model of universal basic income. She moderates a conversation between two academics on different sides of the issue: Michael Strain, a senior fellow and the director of economic-policy studies at the American Enterprise Institute, and Amy Castro, an assistant professor at the University of Pennsylvania. Castro leads the Stockton Experiment, a small-scale U.B.I. project in the California city that, she says, has surprisingly robust results.

To support this ministry financially, visit: https://www.oneplace.com/donate/1085/29 When is free money not so free? Maybe when it's part of expedited child tax credit payments from the IRS. It's all part of the American Rescue Plan passed by Congress earlier this year. Millions of American families have received these expedited payments in July and August. However, some may have to pay the piper for them next year at tax time. While the legislation is no doubt helping cash-strapped Americans still suffering from COVID shutdowns, there's a provision that could be a problem for many families when they have to file their 2021 returns. As part of the law, the Child Tax Credit for 2021 was increased to get more help to more families. Who's eligible for these tax credits? Married couples earning up to $150,000 a year can qualify for the full $300 monthly credit per child while single parents filing as head of household are eligible if they make up to $112,500 a year. Unfortunately, many families are likely to think that these monthly checks are like the previous stimulus payments. They're not.These payments will besubtractedfrom the amount eligible families would normally receive when they file their 2021 returns. So in a sense, it's like they're taking out a loan from themselves that will have to be repaid at tax time. Worse, the IRS says that depending on income it may demand reimbursement if a family receives overpayments for the child tax credit. Though it is a bit of a mess, you do have a couple of options. Even though you've probably received payments in July and August, you can still stop the remaining payments that you'd have to refund the government next spring. The other option is to just continue receiving the payments but don't spendthem. Instead, put the money in an online savings account where you can earn a little bit of interest. Proverbs 10:4 and 5 tells us, A slack hand causes poverty, but the hand of the diligent makes rich. He who gathers in summer is a prudent son. On today's program we also answer a couple of your questions: What do you think about consolidation loans to help pay off credit cards? My banker says that I should invest some of my money, maybe about $100,000, in mutual funds. What do you think?
