Spending on Children Ages 8 and Younger. Urban Institute. Heather Hahn et al. December 7, 2017
Investments in young children can positively influence childhood well-being and long-term social and economic outcomes.
To provide a better understanding of public spending on young children, this report tackles questions about federal, state, and local investments. We provide information on how much the federal government spent on children ages 8 and younger in 2006 and 2016 and estimate projected spending in 2026. We also address where and how those funds are used. [Note: contains copyrighted material].
