Child Tax Credit Outreach Project
In brief, the expanded Child Tax Credit expired this year and will cast a lot of children in to poverty. It may get saved at the last minute at the end of the year, but it may not. In any event, the existing (reduced) CTC does not have anywhere near perfect redemption rates -- there are lots of unclaimed credits out there. Many of them are centralized in parts of the country where major media outlets are not the method by which most folks get their news. I want to assemble a resource of alternative outlets and community leaders in as many of the geographic areas as possible and then go about the job of advocacy. Phase 1 is assembling that resource, and I'm always looking for volunteer information wranglers.

Would you say phase I is ~ 3-5 hours of commitment?

@amtho - it is very much choose your own adventure in that regard, and I'd be happy to have any help that is on offer. I would expect that 3-5 hours commitment could cover a region within a larger state or one smaller state. I know that's vague, my apologies. Thanks for your interest and inquiry!
