October 31, 2018 @ 8:00 am – 5:00 pm
An estimated 73,000 children in North Carolina under age 5 live in hard-to-count census tracts. If they are missed, the state stands to lose more than $5 billion in federal investments that support children’s healthy development – investments like child care subsidy, Head Start, nutrition support (SNAP) and health care (Medicaid) that primarily benefit the most vulnerable children.
Join Whitney Tucker and Adam Sotak from NC Child to learn about how the Census impacts funding for children, what is a hard-to-count census tract, why young children are particularly vulnerable, and how to support an accurate Census count in 2020.
