Parents across Miami-Dade County have just days to enroll in the Child Tax Credit before Monday’s deadline.
The program, part of the American Rescue Plan, is dedicated to helping individuals raising children during the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, Miami-Dade County is setting up locations across the county for parents to enroll.
“The 2021 Child Tax Credit can be a lifeline for so many families still struggling to recover from the pandemic, so they can buy groceries, pay rent or any pending bills,” Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava said.
Benefits for those eligible include $3,000 for each child ages 6 to 17 and $3,600 per child under the age of six. All benefits are paid monthly and eligible families will receive full credit of up to $150,000 for two-parent households and $112,500 for single family households.
