To support communities in improving outcomes for young children and families, the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services has released county data for the 10 goals and more than 50 measures that are part of the NC DHHS Early Childhood Action Plan. These new data reports are available for all 100 counties and cover issues such as infant mortality, food and housing security, emergency room visits, child health, foster care, early learning and early literacy.
Learn more about the reports by joining a webinar.
North Carolina’s Early Childhood Action Plan was built on the foundation of the Pathways to Grade-Level Reading Measures of Success and Action Framework and is driven by the vision that all children will get a healthy start and develop to their full potential in safe and nurturing families, schools and communities. It includes targets to measurably improve outcomes for children from birth through age eight by 2025.
