The Oakland Fund for Children and Youth was established in 1996, when Oakland voters passed the Kids First! Initiative (Measure K), an amendment to the City Charter, to support direct services to youth under 21 years of age. In a special election in 2009 Measure D replaced Measure K and reauthorized funding for the Oakland Fund for Children and Youth for an additional twelve years (2010-2022). Measure D (formerly known as Measure K) sets-aside 3% of the City's unrestricted General Fund and requires a three-year strategic plan to guide the allocation of funds.



POC Meetings

The next regular Planning and Oversight Committee meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, March 7, 2018 from 6:00 to 9:00pm at Oakland City Hall, 1 Frank Ogawa Plaza, 2nd floor, Hearing Room 4, Oakland, CA 94612. 

Community Cafés 

The City of Oakland Human Services Department is excited to be hosting a series of community conversations with youth, parents, service providers and concerned residents on how to best serve Oakland's young people through funding from the Oakland Fund for Children and Youth (OFCY).  These events are co-sponsored and co-hosted by the Oakland Youth Advisory Commission (OYAC), and will help inform the youth commissioners and OFCY’s Planning and Oversight Committee (POC) on needs and priorities in Oakland. Your participation and input will help create a Strategic Investment Plan that will guide OFCY funding for direct services for children and youth in 2019-2022.
