When the Child Tax Credit (CTC) was first expanded as part of the American Rescue Plan, the Daily Yonder assessed the impact of the the measure, using our customary mix of data-driven analysis and written commentary. We brought the same approach when the expansion was set to expire.

Now, as advocates and policymakers pursue options for keeping the expanded CTC in effect, we wanted to add another approach. Because number-crunching and political analysis aren’t for everyone, we asked Graphic Journalist Nhatt Nichols to lend her pad and pen to this issue, as she did previously with other American Rescue Plan projects.

Check out the comic below to catch up on what the expanded CTC has done for rural families and what’s at stake going forward.
