I guess I am suggesting that something like that but one that is a more significant amount. For example, the child credit that paid people (it showed up in bank accounts monthly of people with direct deposit tax filings or they got it when they filed for taxes the following year) with children during Covid has expired and even just the small amount that it paid ($1-2000 I believe per child) apparently greatly reduced child poverty rates. Now that is different than a childcare focused one but it shows that just some amount more can clearly have a big impact on families.
