Fighting Chance for Families Action is a project of the left-of-center Sixteen Thirty Fund and the advocacy affiliate of Fighting Chance for Families. The organizations advocate for a permanent expanded child tax credit, a COVID-19 pandemic relief program created by the March 2021 American Rescue Plan Act which temporarily expanded tax credits for families from $2,000 per child per year to roughly $3,000 per child per year. 
Fighting Chance for Families Action advocates for making the expanded child tax credit permanent and joined other left-of-center groups in the summer of 2021 in events across the United States. 
Fighting Chance for Families Action is a project of the Sixteen Thirty Fund, a left-of-center lobbying and advocacy organization founded in 2008 alongside its charitable “sister” nonprofit the New Venture Fund, which provides funding and fiscal sponsorship services to left-of-center 501(c)(3) organizations. Both groups are administered by Arabella Advisors, a Washington, D.C.-based consulting firm that advises left-leaning clients. Fighting Chance for Families is a project of the New Venture Fund.
