Explainer Pieces: Child Tax Credit

Here’s one idea for service journalism on poverty-related matters.

Check out the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s explainer below about child tax credit payments. The AJC created the one-page document from a piece published on AJC.com and in print in summer 2021, just as the monthly payments began.

This guide — using an ASF (alternative story form) with the Q&A setup — is intended to be shared with people who need to know whether they qualify, what it takes to receive it and more information about the child tax credit.

Download and share the document (with AJC credit) with readers/viewers, community groups, nonprofits, individuals and families.

If you do so, please let us know (email coveringpovertysite@gmail.com) so we can keep track of efforts to spread the information.
