Data and Policy Briefs

Through a series of data and policy briefs, the Infant-Toddler Court Program National Resource Center is creating resources for state and systems leaders to support critical conversations about the future of early childhood policy.

These briefs draw upon the latest data and trends for very young children and synthesize key opportunities and challenges for creating policy change that addresses inequities impacting these families.


This program was made possible through the support of the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) as part of an award totaling $5,000,000 with 0 percent financed from non-governmental sources. The contents are those of the authors and do not necessarily represent the official views of, nor an endorsement by, HRSA, HHS, or the U.S. Government. For more information, please visit HRSA.gov.
