Applications for the rebate, which include payments of $250 per child for up to three children, closed late last month, and the state plans to begin delivering payments by late August.
The state received 238,668 applications for the program, which include 369,863 dependents, according to the governor’s office.
The 2022 Child Tax Rebate is the result of pandemic relief legislation passed in a state budget last spring. Gov. Ned Lamont, a Democrat, has publicly supported continuing the policy in the future.
Applicants needed to be residents of Connecticut, have a child 18 or under on their 2021 tax return, fulfill the income requirement, and tender an application by July 31 in order to receive the payments.
The Department of Revenue Services in Connecticut is tasked with processing applications for the program.
State officials estimated that between 300,000 and 350,000 households were eligible for credit, according to the Connecticut Mirror.
