Abstract: 

This 16-page statement is written by the National League of Cities (NLC) Council on Youth, Education, and Families. In it, the authors begin by explaining why "inaction" in the area of family support is not an option for mayors and municipalities. The authors describe the various leadership and partnership roles that municipal leaders can play in this area. They also explain the importance of engaging residents in these efforts. The authors conclude by identifying the key connections that can strengthen families.
