Economists and experts across the country agree that investments in early childhood health and education pay off. In fact, research by Nobel prize-winning economist James Heckman shows that every dollar invested in these programs produces a 7% to 10% return every year.
Funding programs that help young children develop and grow is smart from an economic perspective. It’s also the right thing to do for our community.
You can play an important role in making sure young children have what they need today so they can be successful later on.
