Children's Budget Act

January 26, 2012
By Jared Solomon

Children's Budget Act.pdfA children’s budget is a deliberate and full accounting of all the money spent on and for children. Because such spending is spread out over many departments and dozens of bureaus, there currently is no simple way to evaluate the overall level of federal investment in children. Comparing levels across years is an equally difficult task. A children’s budget would gather together all sources of funding for children’s programs in one place to communicate a clear picture of the federal investment in America’s young people.
