Parenting in the Context of COVID-19: Phase 2

Organization: Population Reference Bureau

Primary Contact: Lori Turk-Bicakci

Grant Amount: $67,200 for 7 months

Date Awarded:


In 2020-2021, the foundation supported a questionnaire that was fielded three times over a nine-month period to assess the impact of COVID-19 on the experiences of families of children with special health care needs. As the COVID-19 pandemic enters its third year, with emerging consensus that the disease is transitioning to an endemic state, California families face new challenges and new needs. Building on the previous study,, a program of PRB, will field a fourth questionnaire to families in California to inform the need for timely, actionable evidence that policymakers, advocates, and program and agency staff can use to shape the programs, services, and workforce supporting California families as they adapt to significant, and now long-term, life changes. The research will be conducted in partnership with YouGov America.

A summary of the outcomes from the fourth questionnaire can be found on PRB’s website. Data from the questionnaire, as well as a webinar detailing the results of the fourth questionnaire, can be accessed at:
