A Voice for Louisiana’s Children and Families

Agenda for Children was founded to make Louisiana a state in which all children can thrive, by ensuring that the basic needs of children and families are met and that our children are nurtured and well taught, beginning in the early years and continuing through adolescence; that they are protected from harm; and by acting in ways that combat racism and other forms of oppression

NOEEN City Seats

In April 2022, New Orleans voters approved a millage that dedicates up to $21M annually for early care and education for the next twenty years. This funding will add an additional 600 seats to the program and with a potential dollar-for-dollar state match, City Seats may be able to serve as many as 2,000 children in the 2023-2024 school year. The millage will fund workforce development efforts and other wraparound services that directly support children, centers, and teachers. Agenda for Children and our partners are diligently building the capacity of the early education infrastructure to serve more of New Orleans’ children.
