The recent 2021 COVID relief package, the American Rescue Plan, includes a significant expansion of the Child Tax Credit, which has the potential to lift millions of children out of poverty. OPS Member Sherri Alderman, MD, MPH, provides a full analysis of the Child Tax Credit, including background on child-targeted cash transfer programs in the US, recommendations, and advocacy opportunities.

In addition to her practice as a developmental behavioral pediatrician, Dr. Alderman is Chair of the AAP’s Council on Early Childhood. She also serves as the Act Early Ambassador to Oregon.
