The goal for the landscape analysis was to help partners identify the most pressing needs and inform future collaborative work.

Since its inception, Kids’ First Years has promised to report out on the progress made through the initiative each December.

Fiscal Mapping Project

The purpose of the Fiscal Mapping Project was to collect and analyze the data around what and how resources are currently being invested in Alexandria’s 0-5 year olds so that it is possible to understand where the gaps are, how those gaps might be filled most efficiently with existing or new resources, and where advocacy is needed for additional funding or policy changes. This report was generously funded by the Bruhn-Morris Family Foundation.
