SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A new report says state and federal funding for children's programs in Utah grew by 1.3 percent between 2006 and 2009.
The report was compiled by the advocacy group Voices for Utah Children.
The report says Utah spends significant amounts of money on education for children 6 years old and older, but little on programs for younger children.
The report is an attempt to give a guideline to government officials in determining if their funding decisions reflect their priorities for children in Utah.
