To date, the Collective Action effort has involved data analysis, stakeholder engagement, and the development of action teams in each area of focus. Read on for useful reports and data from the effort.
Data Analysis and Summary Report was created to identify the unserved or underserved young children of Placer County with the goal of assembling county stakeholders toward a shared vision and consensus around action. This summary is intended to support efficient use of resources, decision making, and focused program placement to align with the actual needs in Placer County.
