2022-2025 Strategic Plan

OFCY conducts extensive strategic planning every three years to develop a Strategic Investment Plan for the following three-year funding cycle. The plan identifies target populations to be served, objectives, strategies, evaluation measures, and funding allocations, and is a requirement specified in the Oakland City Charter.

In 2021, OFCY is developing the next Strategic Investment Plan for Fiscal Years 2022-2025 (July 1 2022 through June 30 2025), and following steps outlined in the City of Oakland’s Racial Equity Implementation Guide.

Efforts began with a presentation and training by the Department of Race & Equity's Director Darlene Flynn on centering racial equity at the heart of the planning process at their December 2020 meeting. The work continued in January and February 2021 with POC revision to OFCY's Vision and Mission statements, establishing Guiding Principles, and forming an ad hoc Strategic Planning subcommittee to provide leadership to the work.
