First 5 collaborates with statewide partners to increase funding streams dedicated to early childhood health and development and to improve state and county data systems to track outcomes from the evidence-based practices being used by First 5 commissions throughout the state. By exploring and advancing opportunities to preserve and increase funding streams committed to early childhood programs, including Proposition 10, First 5 is working to ensure that California’s youngest children and their families thrive.
