The First 5 San Francisco Commission continues to carefully review our policies to guide implementation of a new 3-5-year funding cycle for the Family Resource Center initiative. In October, we shared a presentation for public comment and input. The Commission has requested an opportunity to review the allocation model included in this presentation, particularly in regards to the current population categories. The Commission is concerned the current approach may not adequately address the impact needed to change outcomes based on findings from the 2015 school readiness assessment report.
An application for funding is anticipated for release in December 2016. The Commission will deliberate allocation questions in its meetings leading up to the release date of the Notice of Funds Availability.
