Communities across the country have used fiscal mapping as a tool to help identify, align, and coordinate funding streams to achieve core educational, workforce, and health outcomes, ensuring that they can effectively serve all youth, particularly those that are at risk and disconnected from school and work.

With the support of the U.S. Department of Education Place-Based Initiative Pilot team, Jobs for the Future, Collaborative Communications, and the Forum for Youth Investment have created a fiscal mapping resource hub, complete with tools and resources that all communities can use to achieve greater impact in their community.

The hub includes case studies, presentations that focus on each stage of the fiscal mapping process, and a fiscal mapping toolkit, all of which arose over the course of the fiscal mapping technical assistance team’s continued work with 15 P3 and Promise Zone communities across the country.

We also want to draw your attention to the federal fiscal mapping toola key component of the hub, which is nupdated for 2018 and now contains extensive information for 146 funding streams across  nine federal agencies. The team envisions this as the first, critical step that communities can take to identify the resources that they can use to enhance the impact of their cradle-to-career programs.

Make sure to share the hub and tool out across your networks—and particularly to communities you work with nationwide. Also, stay tuned for more updates to the fiscal mapping hub over the course of the year!
