Association for Children of New Jersey
This paper presents the annual report of the Association for Children of New Jersey (ACNJ) for 2007. In 2007, ACNJ made the future better for children by: (1) Successfully advocating for an expansion of high-quality preschool through increased funding in the FY 2008 state budget and inclusion of a major preschool expansion in the new school funding formula introduced in December 2007; (2) Securing passage of legislation to create a seamless system for students to transfer credits from two-year to four-year state colleges; (3) Advocating for expansion of the state Earned Income Tax Credit, which ensures that by 2010, 282,000 more families will be entitled to a refund; (4) Publishing a special Kids Count report on children in immigrant families; (5) Empowering the 5,100 members of ACNJ's Make Kids Count NJ network to act on behalf of children; (6) Helping more than 500 families access services in special education and child welfare; and (7) Educating thousands of New Jersey citizens on the needs and rights of children through publications, forums, trainings and e-mails.
