    This brief uses the Family Resource Simulator and Basic Needs Budget Calculator, policy analysis tools developed by the National Center for Children in Poverty (NCCP), to demonstrate the basic costs associated with living and working in North Dakota and illustrate the important role of work supports in helping low-income families make ends meet. The brief also assesses the efficacy of North Dakota’s work support policies in helping families achieve economic security, with a focus on how a small adjustment to North Dakota Healthy Steps (State Children’s Health Insurance program or SCHIP) eligibility could positively impact the health and finances of working families.
