On April 30, 2022, New Orleans residents voted to overwhelmingly pass the Early Education Property Tax Measure 61% to 39%. The property tax levy, coupled with state matching funds, will provide early childhood education to 2,000 children from low-income households annually and nearly cut in half the number of infants and toddlers in New Orleans from low-income families without access to quality early care and education.

Children’s Funding Project, a nonprofit social impact organization that helps communities and states expand equitable opportunities for children and youth through strategic public financing, recently released a case study on this success. Read the Case Study here.
