Governors are in a unique position to align programs and policies for children and their parents through “two-generation” strategies since they oversee most of the state and federal programs for low-income families.


The NGA Center for Best Practices Economic, Human Services & Workforce (EHSW) Division provides information, research, policy analysis, technical assistance and resource development for governors and their staff across a range of policy issues. The division covers economic development and innovation; workforce development focused on industry-based strategies; pathways to employment and populations with special needs; and human services for children, youth, low-income families and people with disabilities.
