Implementation Plan Overview

The Implementation Plan of the Strategic Plan provides additional detail regarding funded strategies within the following Priority Areas: Child Health, Quality Early Learning, Child Safety, and Systems and Networks.  First 5 Yolo will proceed with tactical planning, to focus on local policy and systems change that recognizes the foundational nature of early childhood.  New predictive risk modeling allows First 5 Yolo to target highest-risk families with high intensity prevention and intervention programs.  In recognizing the value to the community of investing “upstream” for children 0-5, First 5 Yolo will continue to fund infrastructure to evaluate and monitor programs, allocate funding efficiently, and provide assistance in quality improvement. The total amount allocated for new programing in the Implementation Plan is $1,057,744.
