Tell them to pass the The Smith-Wyden Bipartisan Child Tax Credit bill.
January 17, 2024
Hardworking families need your help right NOW. Call 1-888-738-3058 today and urge Congress to pass the Smith-Wyden Bipartisan Child Tax Credit. Republicans and Democrats worked together on this important legislation that would increase the tax credit for hardworking families who struggle the most to make ends meet. With such strong bipartisan support, your advocacy can really make a difference.
The Smith-Wyden CTC will make meaningful progress toward the goal of ending child poverty. Although it is not as generous as the tax credit in the American Rescue Plan Act, this proposal will provide full CTC benefits to approximately 16 million children who are currently deprived of CTC resources solely because their families do not earn enough money. More than 20 percent, or one in five children, will benefit from this tax credit. Thank you for sending your member of the House a message today!
CALL NOW! Tell Your Representative:
Pass the Smith-Wyden Bipartisan Child Tax Credit!

When you call, here’s what you might say:
“Hello, my name is [YOUR NAME] from [YOUR TOWN]. I want to let [REPRESENTATIVE’S NAME] know that our country needs to reduce child poverty–which has doubled since 2022. That’s why I support the Smith-Wyden Bipartisan Child Tax Credit. As a NETWORK Lobby for Catholic Social Justice advocate, I believe it is immoral for children to go without meals, medical care, housing, and other vital needs. This CTC proposal will put money in families’ pockets.
This funding in the tax agreement is more important now than ever. For people in my community, in our state, and across the country, wages can’t cover the high cost of monthly bills, like groceries and childcare, and millions of people are pushed into poverty. This is not the time for politics as usual. Congress must work together. Will [REPRESENTATIVE’s NAME] work with their colleagues to pass the bipartisan CTC bill immediately?
