Thank You SF Voters for Putting Children and Families First
On Nov. 4, 2014, Prop C, the “Children and Families First” initiative, was passed by a majority of voters. This will mean an increased investment in our children and guarantee funding for the Public Education Enrichment Fund (PEEF) and the Children and Youth Fund (formerly the Children’s Fund) through FY 2040-41—without any increase in taxes.
Prop C will take a holistic approach to funding for children’s and youth services in San Francisco. It brings together several existing city programs to improve coordination and better serve children and families, including the creation of the Our Children, Our Families Planning Council to develop and oversee the Children and Families Plan. Prop C sustains and builds on the high-impact programs and services provided by PEEF and the Children and Youth Fund.
