Conference Agenda

From Aspiration to Solutions: Funding Early Childhood Development

Nov. 8, 2019 , 9:30 am – 10:30 am
Bayfront Ballroom A, InterContinental Miami

Urban county leaders have embraced the pivotal role of counties in ensuring healthy beginnings for all children in their communities, but often struggle to find funding sources for these efforts. In 2002, the residents of Miami-Dade County voted to create a Children’s Trust that would ensure ongoing funding for early childhood development in the county, helping to tangibly move the needle on the community’s early childhood development efforts. In this session, the Founding Chairman of the Children’s Trust will discuss its formation and successes in ensuring recurring funding from voters, and attendees will share their own solutions to addressing the critical issue of early childhood development.
