Connecticut families now have the option of applying for a child tax credit worth $250, as long as they apply by July 31.
Families may claim up to three children.
Each kid is worth a $250 payment.
This means the most a family could see is $750.
Governor Ned Lamont signed it into law May 9, 2022.
Lamont believes payments will be sent by August, in time for back to school season.
