- German-US pair to meet before holding joint press conference
- US president hopes to strengthen alliances after Trump’s tenure
Before meeting with Angela Merkel, Joe Biden will deliver remarks this morning on the monthly payments from the federal Child Tax Credit.
As part of the coronavirus relief package that Biden signed in March, eligible American families with children under the age of 18 are now receiving monthly cash payments for their enhanced Child Tax Credit.
Starting this morning, nearly all working families in America are receiving their first monthly payment from the expanded Child Tax Credit. If you file your taxes electronically, look for a deposit labeled “CHILDCTC.”
