U.S. Rep. Sharice Davids represents the 3rd Congressional District of Kansas.

Rep. Sharice Davids of Kansas says the increased credit could benefit close to 151,000 children in her district alone.

Families could benefit from the expansion of the Child Tax Credit. As Davids pointed out, there's a $3,600 credit for each child under 6 and $3,000 credit for children aged 6 to 17. To begin receiving the monthly payments, eligible families must file their taxes by the May 17 deadline.
