NORTH LAS VEGAS, NEV. — Today, Congressman Steven Horsford (D-NV-04) released a new study showing the Child Tax Credit pumped $179.1 million into Nevada’s economy and delivered $143.3 million into working families’ pockets in July, benefiting 560,000 Nevada children. Based on the July payments, the new study from the Joint Economic Committee estimates the Child Tax Credit Monthly Payments will continue to pump $179.1 million into the Nevada economy each month.

“Earlier this year, I worked hard to pass the American Rescue Plan to deliver a historic tax break to most Nevada families with children,” said Congressman Steven Horsford. “Today’s study from the Joint Economic Committee shows the immediate impact of the expanded Child Tax Credit, which is returning hard-earned money to deserving families. As we move forward with a budget reconciliation package, I’m committed to a permanent expansion of the Child Tax Credit to set every child up for success and grow our economy.”
