9 Sample Vision Statements All family, friend, and neighbor caregivers will have the tools and supports they need to provide high-quality child care and to provide the development opportunities children need to succeed in school and life. Low-income working families will have access to high-quality infant and toddler child care.

12 Sample Benchmarks Shorter-term benchmarks –Provide 120 hours of training to family, friend, and neighbor caregivers in county –Provide books and resources to support training of family, friend, and neighbor caregivers in training Longer-term benchmarks –40 percent of family, friend, and neighbor caregivers will start training within the year –All families in county will have access to trained family, friend, and neighbor caregivers

13 Determine the Cost Cost Projection Budget Models Cost Allocation

14 Cost Projections Create a cost model –Identify the cost factors »Salaries, supplies –Identify the cost influences »Duration –Baseline estimates

15 Budget Model Is based on a program model Pre-K contracting with child care Head Start partner with child care subsidy Indicates various programs contribution and variables Framework for fiscal budgeting

16 Cost Allocation –Is an organized way to identify the cost shared across organizations, grants, or contracts –Shows prorated cost across several programs –Provides a mechanism for equitable distribution of shared cost

17 2. Identify and Analyze Present Funding Identify existing funding and regulations Analyze present spending Identify gaps and unnecessary or duplicative spending Use existing data or gather data Identify experts on funding streams

18 2. Identify and Analyze Present Funding What categories of spending/funding will be included in the analysis? Who will decide? Who are the experts on the budget/fund source? Under whose authority is the budget being considered? What is the funding source? What is the timeframe for the fund source? Are there specific outcome measures associated with fund source? Is the fund source an appropriate use for the project? Are there duplications? What is the current spending level? Are there opportunities to maximize or leverage funds? QUESTIONS TO CONSIDER:
