What Works for Children in Tough Fiscal Times

Child Trends hosted Common Ground: A Roadmap to Investing in What Works for Children in Tough Fiscal Times, the 6th Annual Kristin Anderson Moore Lecture.  The Lecture featured Patrick McCarthy, President and CEO of the Annie E. Casey Foundation, C. Eugene Steuerle, the Richard B. Fisher Chair and Institute Fellow at the Urban Institute, and Mindy Levit, an Analyst in Public Finance at the Congressional Research Service.

The Lecture focused on setting the scene for the current fiscal debate and what those fiscal times mean for children and families. Levit discussed the context for fiscal reform, the common themes on various deficit reduction proposals, and the challenges in implementing these reforms. Steuerle reviewed the intersection of public policy regarding children, and the effects of the current fiscal times. Patrick McCarthy closed the panel with a discussion on the importance of investing in programs that provide positive outcomes for children during hard fiscal times. 
At the close of the event, the panel answered questions from the audience.
