can attest that both parents get letters -- a bit confusing since total amount is listed in each separate letter.

As a GAL National Casa the homeless and foster care money is amazing

Do the grandparents have to be legal guardians?
Lynne Patalano

Do the children and or grandparents/parents have to be US citizens to get the CTC?
Ken Patterson, RESULTS (he/him)

One of the things blocking the extension of the expanded CTC is the idea that there should be work requirements. Can you tell us in your own words why this is a bad idea?
Betsy Suero Skipp
52:31
You have to have a green card
Lila M Bartel
53:57
But what can we tell our Reps/Senators to do NOW? Is there a way to step up at this moment? Is there a clean bill about CTC and/or EITC we can ask him to introduce?Ours said he wouldn't under any circumstances support Build, Back, Better.

If you received child tax credit allowances for the last 6 months, is it considered income when you file your taxes?
Lynne Patalano
56:00
I really would love to hear the answer to Ken’s question. What are the reasons that the work requirements for CTC are a bad idea?
Ken Patterson, RESULTS (he/him)
57:01
good rephrasing
Betsy Suero Skipp
57:11
I believe that you have to have a green card to have legitimate employment
Ginnie Vogts

I believe people seeking asylum get work papers before getting a Green card.
Lynne Patalano

What about grandparents raising kids on fixed SS and limited retirement?
Ken Patterson, RESULTS (he/him)

Lynne, they can still get the CTC but not the EITC (EITC is "earned" income).

Could an LTE suggest people try www.TaxOutreach.com for people to get help?

FYI Congress is expected to give themselves another one-month extension, until March 11th, to pass a bill and avoid a government shutdown. But with each extension, known as a continuing resolution, flat funding continues to fail the American people―underfunding programs of critical importance to people with low- and moderate-incomes.

But those could be in the LTE with our call to Congress?

We like what Sen. Romney did with the CTC (more generous than the 2021 version). Our issue with his proposal is how he pays for it (getting rid of TANF and cutting the EITC).
Lila M Bartel

Good to hear.
