CSAC Webinar: The Future of First 5 — Expanding Early Childhood Systems
November 3, 2016
When Proposition 10 raised tobacco taxes for early childhood systems in 1998, counties understood that these funds would decline over time. Two decades in, First 5s and their county partners have built new programs and improved existing systems and the demand for these systems and services is growing, not declining.
With the tobacco tax generating less than $150 per child across
California, early childhood systems require an alignment of all
our state systems to ensure that we meet the needs of young
children and their families.
How can counties plan together with their First 5 partners to reduce duplication, focus on the highest risk families, and expand access to essential supports? What are the prospects for other funding to sustain and expand our early childhood systems?
Register for CSAC’s next webinar to join our expert presenter as she answers these questions and gives an update on changes to the programs the future may hold.
