How do we know how the money was spent? By census surveys? Are people required to report how they spent their credits?

The U.S. Census Household Pulse Survey is one source of information about how families are spending their CTC payments. There are other surveys too. Our pulse survey data analysis is at https://nwlc.org/resources/nwlc-analysis-of-u-s-census-bureau-covid-19-household-pulse-surveys/.

NWLC also conducted a national survey about the CTC before the July 15 payment was distributed. Results are at https://nwlc.org/press-releases/ipsos-child-tax-credit-shows-early-success-and-popularity-but-racial-disparities-persist/.

That is ridiculous, heartbreaking, and we have the opportunity now to right that wrong and help those mothers, low wage workers, kids, and families! We’re going to help make this happen.
Susan Oehser
49:51
Thank you for responding to my questions about source of info. I know someone who works on census. Very time consuming and really hope what she does is accurate and useful.

Would reducing the time-line to extend certain policies reduce the costs enough to bring the overall price tag of the Build Back Better, but extend it enough to allow those key programs to become politically popular?
Meredith Dodson (she/her), RESULTS
52:24
Adding to Sarah's comment -- Columbia University researchers also use the Census data. Can see their August analysis here: data from Columbia UniversityAttached infographic and relevant research: https://www.povertycenter.columbia.edu/news-internal/monthly-poverty-august-2021

Are these statistics available by state or county?
Michael Santos, RESULTS (he/him)
54:31
Hi Daria, there's 500M in investments for landlord investments, to encourage them to take vouchers
Patsy O'Shea
54:33
Something has to give. They are not going to pass a $3.5 trillion reconciliation act.So how does this effect all the stuff we are advocating?

Michael Santos, RESULTS (he/him)
54:49
But that's also something that would need work after the reconciliation.
Sarah Hassmer (she/her), NWLC
54:56
NWLC also supports legislation to ban source of income discrimination that would cover housing vouchers. Unfortunately because of the Byrd Rule in the Senate, that can't be included in this Build Back Better reconciliation bill. But we hope to move it in other legislative vehicles, as well as explore incentives for landlords to accept vouchers.

@Karen The voucher data I shared by CBPP is available by state, not county sadly. https://www.cbpp.org/research/housing/housing-vouchers-in-economic-recovery-bill-would-sharply-cut-homelessness-housing
Sara Buckingham
55:58
I’ve heard a lot of talk on the news about MoCs across parties wanting to phase out the CTC amount at lower income levels than currently stands. Where does RESULTS stand on the targeting of CTC vouchers towards lower-income families and do we have language and data we can turn to?
Michael Santos, RESULTS (he/him)
56:01
The housing investments anticipate some of the issues and questions you have about landlords and supply. These investments address both the supply of affordable housing (to increase it) but also to make sure those housing built are actually affordable to low-income households
Meredith Dodson (she/her), RESULTS
56:23
And the Census Household Pulse Survey data also has state level #s: https://www.census.gov/data-tools/demo/hhp/#/
David Plasterer
57:25
Good question Sara! I second that.
La’Shon Marshall
57:37
That just made me do a dance
Meredith Dodson (she/her), RESULTS
58:13
For Sara's question, we strongly oppose taking the CTC away from families with no- or low-income families -- which is why full permanent refundability for the CTC is key (and we are deeply concerned about any "work requirements" linked to the CTC). Grateful a number of you with key MoCs have pushed hard with those offices.
Michael Santos, RESULTS (he/him)
58:46
@patsy, we're waiting to see what Congress decides on the size and scope of the package. The 3.5T really was a product of negotiations, but we're hearing (and expecting) further scaling back. It's a question of how much. Once we know, we can get a better sense of HOW and/or WHAT cuts will be made (If any)
David Plasterer
58:50
Meredith, I think she meant lowering the 400K limit
Sara Buckingham
59:53
Sorry, Meredith - perhaps my question wasn’t clear. I meant phasing it out for folks with higher incomes.
Meredith Dodson (she/her), RESULTS
01:00:11
ah, thx David. Going to share two resources related to full permanent refundability and then answer that: https://www.cbpp.org/research/federal-tax/recovery-package-should-permanently-include-families-with-low-incomes-in-full and https://www.clasp.org/blog/ctc-work-requirements-would-reduce-access-many (some of you might remember Ashley when she was a Hunger Fellow at RESULTS!)
Sara Buckingham
01:00:15
Not decreasing refundability for low income families!
Sarah Hassmer (she/her), NWLC
01:00:15
Biden promised not to increase taxes for families making $400K or less, so that is a factor in the CTC income phase-out discussions.
David Plasterer
01:00:20
I hear from a lot of MOCs and just people in general that people making 400K should not be getting a tax break
Lisa Marchal
01:00:39
Welcome to all the new advocates!

Fabulous. Thanks Amanda! And welcome to our new advocates
Alicia Stromberg
01:02:38
What tips or strategies have you used to welcome and support new advocates? Let us know in the chat! We’d love to hear from you.
Meredith Dodson (she/her), RESULTS
01:02:46
on phasing out the CTC for higher-income families, obviously if there are tough choices to make with limited resources to continue the Child Tax Credit, we very much want it to focus on the lowest-income families. But we are not pushing to phase it out at the higher level -- in part because we know some families, especially given racial wealth inequality/limited assets, might see their income go down dramatically and facing challenges making ends meet
Karyne Bury (she/her), RESULTS
01:02:48
Welcome new advocates!
Kathleen Duncan
01:03:04

Karyne Bury (she/her), RESULTS
01:03:36
Welcome to the family Tiffany!
Meredith Dodson (she/her), RESULTS
01:03:38
As Sarah points out above, there are also political reasons to keep the current CTC levels in place -- longer-term, more "universal" programs have stronger political support too.
Lisa Marchal
01:03:57
I have witnessed groups invite and encourage new advocates to feel welcome to take on leadership roles - which is wonderful!
Michael Santos, RESULTS (he/him)
01:04:15
The history of funding for Housing Choice Vouchers (http://nlihc.org/sites/default/files/Sec4.12_Housing-Choice-Vouchers_2015.pdf) shows that there hasn't been a lot of *NEW* vouchers created. Those new vouchers are targeted for certain populations like veterans. Annual funding has hovered around $20B - $25B, mostly to pay for voucher renewals, not new vouchers. 
Meredith Dodson (she/her), RESULTS
01:04:30
Yes Sara, also known as the ABC trick -- Acknowledge the concern, then Bridge back to your Core message. Great for lobbying conversations and more!

I am also a part-time seminary student, so I have to hop off to get back to homework, but if anyone has more questions for me, just email me at shassmer@nwlc.org. Thank you for all of your advocacy for low-income people, including women of color who face racism and sexism in our economic systems.

A pastor with connections in South Africa shared on a call with our Senator's health staff. His connections said J&J has a COVID vaccine manufacturing facility in South Africa. They manufactured 31 million doses which were then shipped to Europe (paying more per shot so higher on the priority list).

There is some interest in India to push J&J to transfer technology to the currently unused Russian built manufacturing facilities to increase vaccine access.

Where are the best companies in the Global South to produce the mRNA vaccines? How much tech help do they need once they have permission to ramp up the production?

Merck just announced a new drug, maybe that can be scaled up more quickly to help the unvaccinated countries until the vaccines can be made available.
Lester Wyborny
01:55:01
Should we have a White House call in day to ask Biden use the Defense Production Act to produce more vaccines for the entire world? If the pandemic is raging elsewhere it provides a risk to the US.
