First 5 Nevada County funds projects that fall under the initiatives in our Strategic Plan. In making funding decisions, First 5 Nevada County considers best practices, demonstrated effectiveness, demonstrated need, organizational capacity, and accountability. Evaluation is an important part of all of our funding processes.
Our current round of large grants will run from July 1, 2015 to June 30, 2017. The Commission has allocated funds to collaboratives, home visiting, school readiness, family resource centers, children’s behavioral health, bilingual early childhood educator professional development, and dental services. The Commission has articulated its intent to continue funding the same priorities from July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2020 depending on the availability of funds.
