Mapping Fiscal Resources in South Hampton Roads Virginia to Support School Readiness. Regional Summary
Finance Project
In 2007, committees of key stakeholders in the five cities of Chesapeake, Norfolk, Suffolk, Portsmouth, and Virginia Beach developed Collaborative Action Plans focused on key strategies to ensure that children in each city "arrive at kindergarten healthy and ready to succeed in school, and in life." With leadership from Smart Beginnings South Hampton Roads (SHR), community leaders defined objectives and measurable benchmarks to support young children's success. In order to truly realize their vision for children and families, and to achieve the concrete goals set out in the Collaborative Action Plans, city leaders identified a need for more information on the fiscal resources that support the youngest children. To address this need, Smart Beginnings SHR leadership commissioned The Finance Project (TFP) to conduct fiscal mapping studies of the resources supporting an early childhood system in each of the five cities. This paper presents a summary of key findings across the five cities. Publicly Funded Programs Supporting Early Childhood Services in South Hampton Roads Total Estimated Funding---$185 Million is appended. (Contains 8 figures, 1 table and 14 footnotes.)
