Implementation Plan Overview

The Implementation Plan expands upon the Strategic Plan, providing additional detail regarding funded strategies within the following Result Areas: Improved Child Health, Improved Child Development, Improved Family Functioning and Improved Systems and Network. For each objective prioritized in the Strategic Plan, Commissioners reviewed a worksheet with significant detail. Working through subcommittees, Commissioners created an implementation plan that prioritizes five goals and nine strategies to improve the lives of children and families. The Commission updates this plan every year in order to best serve the needs of the community. The total amount allocated for new programming in the Implementation Plan is $941,500.
