Justice from the Start – Supporting Prenatal-to-Three with Federal Relief Funds: Family Support
October 20 2021
1:30 PM EDT
As our nation attempts to turn the corner on COVID-19, we know that the road to recovery for many families with young children, particularly families of color, is uneven and inequitable. Federal relief funds in the American Rescue Plan Act represent significant, unprecedented funding that provides champions with an opportunity to advance equity and justice from the start in the prenatal-to-three period. Join us for the second installment in this three-part series highlighting innovative uses of pandemic funding for family support policies and initiatives. This webinar will feature trailblazers from local jurisdictions who are leading the way with guaranteed basic income for parents and young children in marginalized communities; mental health consultation services, fatherhood programs and stable housing supports; and an initiative to convert a museum into a family resource center. Webinar attendees will come away with information regarding these innovative approaches and how they might advance similar projects in their states and communities.
