Millions of Americans struggled once the federal child tax credit, or CTC, payments ended, but there are states still giving them.
This means millions of Americans can benefit from their own states and the child tax credits they’ve bolstered or created.
Other states are offering stimulus checks, like Maine where residents can expect $850 payments if they filed their 2021 tax return.
