Program Funding

From January 2017 through December 2021, First Year Cleveland raised and will have invested more than $17.6 million in critical community programming proven to reduce infant deaths. 

We are grateful to all our funding partners for their significant investments in First Year Cleveland. Our programming continues to improve, with both the City of Cleveland and Cuyahoga County realizing decreases in the overall number of infant deaths as well as the number of premature births. 

We thank all our funded programs for their continued efforts to improve birth outcomes and reduce racial disparities.
