On June 8 DCYF will release the first official draft of our Community Needs Assessment (CNA), and we want your opinion about it!

Here's where and how you can share your thoughts:

  • June 13, 2016: Oversight and Advisory Committee Meeting,  6pm at 1390 Market, Suite 1125. The Oversight and Advisory Committee, which was formed with the passage of Proposition C in 2014 to monitor and participate in the administration of the Children and Youth Fund, will be meeting to discuss the draft. The meeting is open to the public.
  • June 14, 2016: Community Input Session, 10am-Noon at DCYF, 1390 Market, Suite 900, in The Mint Conference Room. The meeting will start with the same presentation that will be given at the OAC meeting, and will include an opportunity to provide feedback. The meeting is open to the public.
  • June 8 to 15, 2016: Online Feedback Form. DCYF will release the Feedback Form in a special edition of the DCYF newsletter and on our website, Twitter feed, and Facebook page. The Feedback Form will close at 5pm on Wednesday, June 15. The Feedback Form will be open to the public.

The DCYF grantmaking process and planning cycle are based on a five year timeline, with multiple opportunities for community involvement along the way. The CNA is the first phase of the process, and will be followed by the creation of a Services Allocation Plan (SAP) in 2016/17 that will outline how funds will be allocated to meet service needs outlined in the CNA. DCYF will issue a Request for Proposals based on the CNA and SAP in 2017/2018, with funding to begin in July of 2018. 

We're looking forward to what you have to say about the CNA, and we hope to see you and yours at one of our meetings! If you have any questions about the feedback process please contact Emily Davis

Mayor Lee Announces Additional $72 Million Investment to Support Children, Youth, and Families, and $6 Million to Support Nonprofit Organizations

Mayor Lee, a pair of cute kiddos (including one who needs to rethink his hat choice!), and a photobombing Doggy Diner head!

On May 26 Mayor Lee announced that over the next two years the City will contribute and invest $72 million in programs for children, youth and families, representing a 13 percent growth over the next two years compared to FY 2015-16 spending. The increase will bolster many existing programs and includes the following additional new funds for key initiatives:

  • Early Care and Education: an additional $11.2 million will be invested in the care and education of infants and children 0-5 years of age. $6 million of this new funding is from the Children and Youth Fund and will help childcare facilities serving the City’s neediest families provide better quality care and maintain and increase slot availability. The investment will also provide subsidies for families to help offset the high cost of childcare in the City. The remaining $5.2 million represents increased support for the Preschool for All program.
  • Family Engagement: $2.1 million in additional funding will improve families’ ability to navigate the myriad of children and youth services offered by the City, which will include the addition of a services navigation specialist within the Our Children Our Families Council and the build-out of an online services inventory. Furthermore, up to 750 families will directly benefit through additional funding for children’s services providers to increase their capacity for family engagement activities.
  • Summer and Afterschool Programming: building on previous investments in this area, an additional $2.6 million will further expand summer and afterschool programs to keep an additional 2,000 San Francisco children and youth engaged and learning outside of school time.
  • Youth Workforce Development: $2 million will create 250 new slots in City Youth Workforce Development programs; provide funding for financial literacy training for 2,500 youth, and increase funding for the Mayor’s Youth Jobs+ initiative, connecting an additional 1,000 youth to private sector employment opportunities. These services benefit youth aged 14-24. An additional $1.7 million has been allocated for targeted workforce and education programs, specifically addressing needs of disconnected Transitional Aged Youth, building upon program investments begun in FY 2015-16.
  • Violence Prevention Collaborative: $3.1 million in new investment will fund a new African American Violence Prevention Collaborative (AAVPC), which forms part of the Mayor’s recently announced comprehensive violence prevention initiatives. This is a community-driven systems reform initiative dedicated to transforming the health and safety outcomes of the most disconnected African American youth up to 24 years of age in San Francisco. By enabling the AAVPC to serve as a culturally competent, community centered and results driven funding stream for local non-profit partners, the City hopes to see the same impactful work that is also occurring with the Mission-based Roadmap to Peace collaborative.
  • Service Provider Capacity: $1.4 million will be invested in improving the capacity of children’s service providers throughout the City. This includes technical assistance and the creation of an opportunity fund that grantees can access to address unbudgeted emergency or capacity-building needs.
In addition to funds specifically for children, youth, and families, Mayor Lee announced that the City would invest $6 million to create permanently affordable space for nonprofit organizations and invest in long-term sustainability of neighborhood-serving nonprofit organizations in San Francisco. From the Mayor's Press Office:

"These new programs are a key part of the Mayor’s Nonprofit Sustainability Initiative, which helps nonprofit organizations start, stay and grow in San Francisco. Launched in 2015 by Mayor Lee, the Nonprofit Sustainability Initiative is a collaboration between the Office of Economic and Workforce Development (OEWD), the Mayor’s Office of Housing and Community Development, the Arts Commission, and other key partners. In June 2015, OEWD hired a one-stop nonprofit liaison to directly support nonprofits and to advise with regard to technical assistance, policy, and other measures that will fortify the City’s nonprofit sector."  Visit this link for the full press release.

DCYF is thrilled about the Mayor's commitment to nonprofit agencies and to important programs and initiatives for children, youth and families in San Francisco. We are looking forward to working with our fellow City departments, the school district, and our nonprofit partners to make San Francisco a great place to grow up!

Mayor Lee Launches 5th Annual Youth Jobs+ Initiative

On May 12 Mayor Lee and the United Way of the Bay Area, along with City Departments & private sector employers, kicked off the Mayor’s Youth Jobs+ 2016 initiative, challenging employers of both large and small companies to create jobs, internships and paid job training for San Francisco youth ages 14-24. Over 5,600 jobs and internships were pledged at the event!

Many youth placed by the Mayor’s Youth Jobs+ Initiative are from low-income families and face significant barriers: they are disconnected or at-risk youth, including those from the foster care system, the juvenile justice system, and those who do not have right to work documents. Business and industry partners have strongly expressed their support for this initiative, pledging jobs, internships, and funds year after year.

DCYF would like to thank everyone involved in making Youth Jobs+ a success year after year. Bring it on, 2016!
