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.
