Investing in Families

The pandemic has challenged working families in ways we’d never imagined and has made it harder for so many of us to give our kids a good start in life. I ran for Congress to build a secure future for my family and yours. Recovering from the coronavirus pandemic means getting America’s families back on track.

I proudly voted to pass the American Rescue Plan, which provided shots in arms, money in pockets, and a pathway to economic recovery. Here in the Third District and across the country, the American Rescue Plan’s funding for school reopening plans, childcare, housing, and small businesses have proven vital to millions of peoples’ personal pandemic recovery.

One of the aspects of the American Rescue Plan I am most proud of is the Child Tax Credit, a forward-thinking investment in the future of America’s families that provides up to $300 a month for working families. In New Jersey’s Third Congressional District alone, 76.8 percent of children are benefiting from this policy, which is putting food on the table and lunches in backpacks, as well as helping households pay rent and bills.

But we need to do more. That’s why I’m also fighting to:

Our families deserve more than just to survive. I’m committed to helping New Jersey families thrive so the American Dream becomes a reality for all of us.
