Topic: Child Tax Credit | Head Start and Early Head Start programs are uniquely positioned to ensure every one of their families applies for the Child Tax Credit. This funding aims to support over 4 million children living in poverty, and 1 million of those are enrolled in Head Start/Early Head Start programs. But, without support, many families will not have the understanding or access to apply successfully. This Ignite session aims to pull together the best ideas around supporting families before the November 15th enrollment date to receive the full benefit.
