2020 State Policy Survey: Child & Youth Policy Coordinating Bodies in the United States

The 2020 State Policy Survey analyzes the partnerships, goals, data, accomplishments and challenges that the coordinating bodies of the State Children’s Cabinet Network navigated in the past year. This biennial survey is the nation’s only survey of state child and youth policy coordinating bodies – offering detailed insights to those who work to serve young people.

The 2020 iteration of this survey is special in that it explores the ways that children’s cabinets navigated the COVID-19 pandemic and grappled with a racial justice reckoning that inspired equity-centric pivots, practices and policies worth highlighting and prioritizing in the future.
