Congress has sent North Carolina a historic $1.3 Billion to invest in our early childhood & child care programs. This is a stunning opportunity – not just to rebuild our ailing child care sector, but to ensure that thousands more of North Carolina’s toddlers are ready to succeed when they arrive in kindergarten. Make sure state legislators maximize the impact of these funds for our youngest learners!
NC Senators will be voting soon on HB 272. This is an important opportunity to reduce young children’s lead exposure – please take action with our simple email form!
North Carolina’s leaders have a huge opportunity to bring affordable health coverage to low-income people in our state — building back stronger from COVID-19. Contact your legislators today!
Your donation puts NC Child’s strategies to work for children and families across the state.
Many children across our state face significant barriers that affect their wellbeing. Too many kids and families face discrimination because of their race, ethnicity, and place of birth. NC Child wants every child to have the chance to thrive.

Since the pandemic began, hundreds of thousands of North Carolinians have lost their jobs – and health insurance. It’s time for state leaders to act.
Some NC kids have unacceptable levels of lead in their bodies, putting them at risk. Eliminating exposure to lead means healthier brain development.
North Carolina can’t go back to work without child care. Access to strong early childhood programs is critical for child development, & for NC’s working families.
