A public engagement initiative titled Smart Investing: Communities Thrive When Children Thrive began last year to establish what North Carolina communities want for their youngest children and the future of the state. Funded by the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation and with participation from Lt. Governor Walter Dalton and Smart Start, Smart Investing is bringing together a diverse mix of citizens to begin a new dialogue about early education and children’s health in North Carolina.
We want to hear what you have to say. Let us know what you are thinking by participating in a virtual conversation – just go to the Smart Investing website . Your responses will be compiled and will help determine the priorities for young children identified by North Carolinians
