PROGRAMS FOR CHILDREN, FAMILIES & YOUTH
The Oakland Fund for Children and Youth was established in 1996, when Oakland voters passed the Kids First! Initiative (Measure K), an amendment to the City Charter, to support direct services to youth under 21 years of age. In a special election in 2009 Measure D replaced Measure K and reauthorized funding for the Oakland Fund for Children and Youth for an additional twelve years (2010-2022). Measure D (formerly known as Measure K) sets-aside 3% of the City's unrestricted General Fund and requires a three-year strategic plan to guide the allocation of funds.

OFCY has released the DRAFT Strategic Investment Plan for 2016-2019. The plan will be presented to the Planning and Oversight Committee for their approval in September 2015, and to Oakland City Council in October 2015. Following approval by Oakland City Council, OFCY will release a RFP in late 2015 based on the funding strategies identified in the plan. Contact Mike Wetzel at firstname.lastname@example.org for comments on the draft.
