Michelmore provides insight on child tax credit in Gender Policy Rpt

Katherine Michelmore"A Bigger Child Tax Credit Gives Families Flexibility," written by Katherine Michelmore, assistant professor of public administration and international affairs, was published by the Gender Policy Report. "A policy that provides an unconditional monthly cash benefit gives parents more flexibility to choose an arrangement that works best for their families," says Michelmore. "Regardless of which path families choose, a long line of research suggests that providing families, particularly low-income families, with extra income will benefit families and children in the long term through better education, higher earnings in the future, lower crime rates, and better health," she says. 04/19/21
