Funded Program Summary
The Imperial County Children and Families First Commission has funded a number of projects designed to help address the overall development of children 0-5 years of age. In the past 16 years the Commission has allocated over $32 million within the county to support this mission. Projects funded by the Commission generally provide services under three result areas: Services designed to strengthen families, support child health, and contribute to the early care and education of the child. These services may specifically target the child, or family directly; or may indirectly support the child through professional development and capacity building opportunities for providers or through community strengthening efforts, such as general public education, media campaigns or resource and information dissemination.
The Commission has awarded 12 Major Grant and 5 Mini-Grant funded Projects to agencies interested in applying for Proposition 10 funds that would be used to provide services to children 0-5 years of age, their families and/or caregivers for Fiscal Year 2016-2017. These services include programs that focus on early care and education, strengthening families and family support, and child health. The total allocated amount for the Projects that were selected for this funding cycle is $1,570,605.00 for Fiscal Year 2016-2017 (year two of the two-year funding cycle).
