Hartford Mayor Luke Bronin (right) on Friday encouraged residents of his city to take advantage of a child tax rebate recently approved by state lawmakers. Bronin said he doesn't want people to miss out on as much as $750 per family. The deadline to apply is July 31.

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 on Tuesdays and Thursdays for walk-ins so that 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.
