Policy Recommendations

The First 5 Sonoma County Commission is actively involved in advocacy at the local, state and federal levels and as per their 2021-2025 Strategic Plan, adopts an annual Policy Agenda. Many local and state level data sources indicate deepening racial and economic disparities and a greater need for supporting the health, social-emotional development, and school readiness of vulnerable children. Based on this data and the recent FM3 polling research, the Commission has released a policy recommendation to establish a local, dedicated funding stream to address the needs of children, 0-5.
