Every expectant family in Forsyth County deserves a healthy birth outcome for their newborn– regardless of their race or economic status. That’s how children begin to thrive, right from the start. But too often, there are disparities in birth and maternal outcomes. At the state level, Black children are more than twice as likely as white children to die in their first year of life. In Forsyth County, Black and Hispanic infant mortality rates are higher than infant mortality rates for whites. This funding opportunity is intended to help address disparities and ensure healthy birth outcomes for all families.
