One-Click Action: Urge Congress to Expand the Child Tax Credit to Help Our Families Today!

November 13, 2017

As a result of Hurricane Maria, more families are leaving Puerto Rico, in large part because they lack economic opportunities. In October alone, more than 67,000 people traveled from Puerto Rico to Florida.

Congress can provide immediate relief for families by extending the child tax credit. Currently, this credit is only available to families with three or more children — which only represents 12 percent of families in the island. Extending it to families with one or two children would reward hard work, reduce child poverty and incentivize families to stay on the island.
