Webinar — The American Rescue Plan: Changing the Trajectory for Texas’ Children

Webinar — The American Rescue Plan: Changing the Trajectory for Texas’ Children

Healthy early childhood development is critical to our nation’s vitality, yet investments in young children have been historically lacking. For many American families, the COVID-19 pandemic created major disruptions that negatively impacted young children. To remediate the harmful effects of COVID-19 on young children and their families, the American Rescue Plan included an unprecedented amount of federal funding to support early childhood development. Whether the funding will change the trajectory of the nation’s youth depends on evidence-based policies, programming and implementation at the state and local levels.  

At this webinar, Quianta Moore, the Huffington Fellow in Child Health Policy, moderated a virtual discussion with a panel of experts on how to support the next generation of children and their families, and how the American Rescue Plan can be leveraged to implement evidence-based strategies.

This webinar was sponsored by the Baker Institute Center for Health and Biosciences. Follow @BakerCHB on Twitter, and join the conversation online with #BakerHealth.
