Hartford Mayor Luke Bronin, right, on Friday encouraged residents of his city to take advantage of a child tax credit recently approved by state lawmakers. Bronin said he doesn't want people to miss out on as much as $750 a family as a July 31 application deadline looms.

Connecticut families have until July 31 to get a child tax rebate.

In advance of the deadline, Hartford Mayor Luke Bronin on Friday visited a local family aid center to discuss the rebate and encourage people to apply.

Bronin said that in these times, people can’t afford to miss out on a benefit of $250 per child for up to three kids.

“With the price of gas, the price of groceries, the price of rent all going up, that $750 -- if you’ve got three kids -- that’s a game changer,” he said. “We want to make sure that everybody knows about it.”

The Village for Families and Children in Hartford has opened up Tuesdays and Thursdays for walk-ins so city residents can get help with their applications.

Residents who don’t live in Hartford and need more information on the rebate can call 2-1-1. People can also call the Department of Revenue Services at 860-297-5999, Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
