Glimmers of Joy from Outagamie County Extension

From Karen Dickerell: Some key ideas to think about as suggested by the Harvard Press booklet, Positive Psychology include: Bravery -- try something you have been afraid to do -- take the plunge! Try a new recipe. Take up dancing! Curiosity -- learn something new, read an aritcle, watch a video or podcast on a topic you want to learn about Self-control -- try to think of the positive instead of dwelling on what is not going well Appreciation of beauty -- take time to smell the roses or whatever else you find in nature! Open mindedness -- try to find the other side of the story, try to understand a different point of view Creativity -- try out your creative juices, rearrange a cupboard or storage area! Move things around! Love -- remember those love notes from a couple of months ago? Write some more and place on the windshield or the bathroom mirror or tucked into a bag lunch!

Child Tax Credit summer, 2021

The Child Tax Credit is part of the American Rescue Plan and aims to help families raising children make ends meet. Experts estimate the new Child Tax Credit has the potential to cut child poverty in half. 

Who is eligible for the child tax credit? 

Starting on July 15 and through the rest of the calendar year, payments will be made monthly at $250 per child between 6-17 years old or $300 per child under 6 years old. All working families will get the full credit if they make up to $150,000 for a couple or $112,500 for a family with a single parent (also called head of household).

What do families need to do to receive payments? 

If families filed their 2020 taxes this year or filed 2019 taxes last year, or used the IRS “Non-Filer Portal” to get a stimulus check last year, they don’t need to do anything. Didn’t file taxes in the last 2 years? Go to this
