Online Submission, Paper Presented at the Annual Meeting of the American Educational Research Association (AERA) (Chicago, Il, Apr 16-20 2015)
First five years are identified as a critical period of child growth in scientific literature. In 1998, California voters passed Proposition 10 that appropriated a 50 cent per pack tax on cigarettes and other tobacco products to support early childhood development. As a result, Kern County Children and Families Commission administered over $10 million in FY 2013-14 to fund 40 programs in focus areas of "Child Health," "Family Functioning," and "Child Development." In this study, variability of partnership strength is partitioned at the "program" and "focus area" levels. The result indicates co-existence of program effects with the significant funding impact, including "center-based" vs. "home-based" services, "initiation" or "collaboration" in partnership building, Summer-Bridge learning, referral support, and program outreach in hard-to-reach communities.
