my 24 y/o daughter+ kids moved back in and i have supported for more than half of the year. can i claim my daughter as a dependent?

No. There are no more dependent exemptions - they were eliminated and you got a bigger standard deduction.
Read IRS Publication 501 to see if her kids meet the test for being your qualified relative. If they do and they were under 17 at the end of 2019, you may be able to claim the Child Tax Credit.

How much did she make for the year? If over about $4000, no, you cannot claim her and by extension cannot claim the kids since she can.

Maybe. It depends on how much income she had before moving back.

Per IRS pub 501, your descendants don't have to live with you the whole year. Your daughter, however, cannot have an income greater than $4200.

See IRS publication 501. For your daughter, the rules are tough.
Among other rules, her income has to be less than $4200 and you have to have provided more than half of her support for the entire year, not just when she lived with you. If you sent her lots of money, maybe.
Unless she was a student, all you would qualify for is a $500 credit.

Yes, but make sure she agrees to it / won't claim herself on her taxes..

Probably not. To claim someone who is 24 or older, you usually need them to live with you all year, not just more than half.
However, if she can't claim her kids, then you might be able to claim them, because they are your grandchildren and under 19 and lived with you over half the year.

Only if she is classified as unable to work.
