Focus Area: Advocacy in Early Childhood
Grant Amount: $10,000
Based in St. Paul, serves Ramsey County. Through child and family services and employment services, Lifetrack works to end disparities, making Minnesota communities a place where all families can thrive.
Grant supports continuing a campaign by the Minnesota Coalition for Targeted Home Visiting, for which Lifetrack is the fiscal agent, to secure statewide funding for targeted, intensive home visiting, increase political support for home visiting as a core early childhood service, and collaborate to improve the quality of home-visiting services. MCTHV will provide expertise to partners and other coalitions that have adopted the coalition’s legislative platform, especially Minnesota’s Prenatal-3 coalition and the Start Early Funders. Home visiting has been able to adapt to the Covid-19 crisis through virtual visits and is providing important support to vulnerable families.
