Preterm birth and low birth weight are common causes of infant mortality in the  United States. While there is no definitive approach for preventing these causes, counties can play a major role in reducing infant mortality rates through systemic change and local strategies. Mothers’ health, environment and experiences affect how infants develop prenatally through their infancy. Join us for a discussion on strategies urban counties can deploy to improve outcomes for mothers and infants.

In March, American Rescue Plan Act was signed into law, which established the $350 billion Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund. The legislation provided $61.5 billion in direct, flexible funding to counties of all sizes. Now that the U.S. Treasury has begun administering the dollars, county leaders are deciding how to best invest these critical dollars responsibly and equitably to ensure the recovery of both our residents, communities and national economy. This session will examine eligible uses of Recovery Funds and steps local leaders can take when developing and implementing plans. Session participants will also have the opportunity to meet in small groups and discuss county investments of Fiscal Recovery Funds.
