This work often focuses on populations in need of targeted support. The coordinating bodies are sometimes called Children's Cabinets.
Is your county or city interested in developing a Children's Cabinet or do you already have the structure but want to learn more? This webinar explored this new and emerging space to improve the lives of children and youth:
P3 will give selected local, tribal and state agencies the opportunity to enter into an agreement with the federal government that will grant broad flexibility in how the site uses discretionary federal funds to implement evidence-informed practices while committing to achieve significant improvements for disconnected youth. P3 applicants can request to (1) blend their existing federal discretionary funds and (2) receive flexibility from specific federal program requirements. The round three proposals are due October 31.
This Annie E. Casey Foundation webinar featured the Forum's policy leaders, Thaddeus Ferber and Elizabeth Gaines, and explored tools to help communities develop a "fund map" of existing dollars spent on young people. The session also covered the steps required to develop a strategic financing plan.
