The Finance Project:"As the policy, political, and economic landscape change, new needs and investment priorities inevitability emerge. With welfare reform, public- and private-sector roles and responsibilities for meeting the needs of economically disadvantaged families have been redefined. Recognition of the importance of brain development in the earliest years of life has created a new urgency to ensure the health and development of young children. The changing global economy is heightening the need to promote educational achievement and prepare the future workforce. Creating more comprehensive community services for families raising children, strengthening the links between schools and other community institutions, revitalizing disadvantaged neighborhoods, and moving vulnerable families from welfare to work have all emerged as high priorities for public and private-sector investment. These needs and investment priorities suggest new challenges and opportunities. Many of these challenges and opportunities relate directly to choosing program and policy options that will best strengthen families, ensure healthy, safe, and successful children, and revitalize communities. Others relate to crafting new strategies to effectively finance education, family and children's services, and community building and development."
