National Trends in State Spending for Children and Youth

Children's Funding Project


Ever wondered how much states spend on programs and services for children? Then join us for a webinar on November 16 at 2 p.m. EST where we will share national trend data about how states use their state, federal, and federal relief funding to support children and youth from cradle to career. We will share findings from our work with the 14 state partners in our pilot state child and youth fiscal map cohort; discuss how national, state, and local partners can use this national trend analysis to support their decision-making; and outline next steps for how to make an impact with this data.
