With COVID-19 still affecting the economy and people's finances, experts have seen food hardship increase across the country recently, rising faster in households without children. Patrick Cooney, assistant director of the Detroit Partnership on Economic Mobility, explained how the now-expired Child Tax Credit provided aid for families, describing the discrepancy in the data. 

"We're still in a pandemic," Cooney said. "It seems like there's a strong case that we should be continuing these measures."
