Community Events at the East Side Freedom Library

I'd like to invite you to two upcoming East Side Freedom Library (ESFL) events:

Eviction Moratorium event

On Wednesday July 14th from 6:30p-8p, the ESFL will host an event, The Eviction Wave and What to Do. They will share about the current state of affairs surrounding evictions in Minnesota and will share information on how to use RentHelpMN - the program the state is using to prevent an eviction wave.

Seating provided.

Child Tax Credit

Child Tax Credit

Monthly payments for families with kids start on July 15, 2021. The federal American Rescue Plan increased the amount of the 2021 Child Tax Credit to support families with children. The full benefit of the Child Tax Credit is now $300 per month per child under age 6 and $250 for each child age 6 to 17.  You can receive monthly payments for six months (July – December 2021) and you’ll receive the remaining tax credit when you file your taxes next year.  

Did you file taxes in the last two years or sign up to get a stimulus check last year? Then you don’t have to do anything to get the money you’re already owed! The IRS will automatically send you a monthly payment by direct deposit or check starting on July 15, 2021 if you are eligible.  Didn’t file taxes in the last 2 years? There’s one easy step to start getting your Child Tax Credit payments. Just fill out a simple form to begin receiving your monthly payments.
