Help Is Here: Monthly Child Tax Credit Payments for Maryland Families

June 25, 2021

Dear Friend,

Beginning on July 15, most Maryland families with children will be eligible to receive a 2021 federal Child Tax Credit payment of $300 per month for each child under age 6 and $250 per month for each child aged 6 to 17.

This monthly benefit comes from the American Rescue Plan, which my colleagues and I in Congress enacted earlier this year. It will be a tremendous boon for families across our state.

To help Marylanders learn more about how to determine eligibility and receive these monthly payments, I recently held an information session with Rob Bader from the CASH (Creating Assets, Savings and Hope) Campaign of Maryland – a nonprofit organization that promotes economic advancement for low-to-moderate income individuals and families.

See here for the session’s slide deck presentation.

If you or your family need help accessing important federal benefits, please send me an email or call (410) 832-8890 during normal business hours. My staff and I would be happy to assist you.
