Administrative Analyst

Bay Area QRIS Partnership - Data System Coordinator and Analyst

Recruitment #PEX-1822-080377

Introduction

In November 1998, California voters passed Proposition 10, the California Children and Families Act, to help make sure that our youngest children receive the best possible start. The proposition increased the tax on tobacco products to fund local family support, health care and early care and education programs that promote early child development, targeting children-from prenatal to age five-and their families. First 5 San Francisco is the public entity responsible for receiving and disbursing San Francisco’s Proposition 10 funds. First 5 San Francisco receives approximately $5.9 million per year in Proposition 10 revenues and reinvests these public funds through grants to both public and private entities. Funds are intended to promote, support and improve early childhood development, health, and parental support through coordinated resources and programs. First 5 San Francisco has a staff of 15 and is governed by a nine-member Commission, which includes experts in the fields of health, children’s services and early care and education, some of whom represent city agencies and the Board of Supervisors.  Additional information can be found on our website: first5sf.org.
