Promoting Racial Equity in Early Intervention

There is a historic racial equity gap in children’s access to Early Intervention (EI) services. While the New York City EI Program serves all eligible children birth to 3 with developmental delays, black and brown families are consistently referred and retained at lower rates. Learn how Robin Hood, New York’s largest poverty-fighting organization, worked with government and non-profit partners to use community health and digital strategies to make strides in closing this gap.
