Assembly bill 3852 will give residents of the state a maximum payment worth $500 toward a child tax credit.

This plan comes as Americans struggle financially following the ending of the expanded federal CTC.

This expansion made the maximum credit worth $3,600, up from $2,000 the year before.

In addition, the first half of estimated child tax credits were sent over the span of six months in advance.

Now, the credit is back to $2,000 and there are no advanced payments.
