Best Starts for Kids:  King County Proposition 1 - August 3, 2021

Best Starts for Kids is a voter-approved initiative to help put every baby born and every child raised in King County on a path toward lifelong success.

It invests in prevention and early intervention strategies that promote healthier, more resilient children, youth, families and communities. It is considered the most comprehensive approach to early childhood development in the United States, starting with prenatal support, sustaining the gain through teenage years, and investing in safe, healthy communities that reinforce progress.

Best Starts for Kids is making research based on the latest neuroscience available to all parents and caregivers so that every child and youth in our region has the opportunity to achieve their full potential.

Best Starts for Kids will be up for renewal as a Special Election held concurrently with the Primary.
