The Rockefeller Foundation has hired SKDKnickerbocker for a communications campaign to educate the public about the impact of the expanded Child Tax Credit that was part of president Joe Biden’s American Rescue Plan.
The plan boosted the credit to from $2K to $3K for children over the age of six and from $2K to $3,600 for children under six. Working families with incomes up to $150K for a couple received the full credit.
The expanded credit applies for 2021.
House Democrats propose extending the child tax credit until 2025 under the party’s $3.5B tax and spending package.
SKDK is receiving a $140K grant from the Rockefeller Foundation to fund the campaign.
That funding, which falls under the Foundation’s commitment to equity & economic opportunity, covers the period from June 1 though the end of the year.
