2019 Annual Report

Since its inception, Smart Beginnings Alexandria has promised to report out on the progress made through the initiative each December. The annual report shares progress of our collective efforts to develop an early care and education system. It also aims to provide a look at the broader context in which we work and help us assess what is working well and what is not.

Fiscal Mapping Project

The purpose of Fiscal Mapping Project was to collect and analyze the data around what and how resources are currently being invested in Alexandria’s 0-5 year olds so that it is possible to understand where the gaps are, how those gaps might be filled most efficiently with existing or new resources, and where advocacy is needed for additional funding or policy changes. This report was generously funded by the Bruhn-Morris Family Foundation.
