Areas of work

Every Kansas child — from birth to elementary school— should have access to high-quality early education, access to affordable health care, and support if times get tough. These investments in the early years create a rock-solid foundation for growth and development that lasts a lifetime. And through sensible budget and tax policy, Kansans support kids and families who otherwise would go without. These four areas, separate but tightly linked, are at the center of all that KAC does.
