With new data showing the benefits of federal child tax credits, Montana economists are asking the state’s congressional delegation to make the benefit permanent.

Since July, more than 100,000 Montana families with children 17 and younger have received monthly payments of $300 for each child younger than 6 and $250 for each child aged 6 to 17. Nationally, the tax credits are expected to reduce child poverty by half.
