Community Action Council

First Year Cleveland is a community-wide, data-driven group acting with urgency to prevent our babies from dying. Working together, we are making an impact due to our collaboration with a diverse mix of individuals and organizations from throughout Cuyahoga County. They comprise our FYC Community Action Council.

This group of more than 400 prospective and current parents, along with community stakeholders including health care providers, grassroot entities, public and private entities, faith-based organizations and the philanthropic community, are working on interconnected interventions across eleven FYC Action Teams.

If you are interested in joining the Community Action Council, please contact us.

2020 Census: The deadline for both field data collection and self-responses is now September 30 rather than the original July 31 date. As of July 9, only 66.5 percent of Ohioans and only 46.9 percent of Clevelanders have completed the 2020 Census. A complete census is critical as data collected will determine congressional representation, inform hundreds of billions in federal funding every year, and provide data that will impact communities for the next decade.
