Invest in BBF to Build an Integrated, Data-Informed Early Childhood System
Building Bright Futures (BBF) fulfills an essential role as Vermont’s early childhood State Advisory Council (SAC), mandated by state and federal statute to uphold the vision and strategic plan for an integrated system. BBF improves the well-being of each and every child and family in Vermont by using evidence to inform policy and bringing voices together to discuss critical challenges and problem-solve. The Alliance supports BBF’s request for increased base funding by $261,000 to adequately support the work of the SAC, Vermont’s Early Childhood Action Plan, and 12 Regional Councils required to respond quickly to critical requests from the legislature and public and private community partners.
