Program Description

  Children's Opportunity Fund

This program provides support to administer the Children's Opportunity Fund Non-Departmental Account (COF NDA). The COF NDA provides funding to support policy priorities that address the social determinants that impact the achievement gap for vulnerable children and the barriers faced by their families. These actions are supported by a Policy Leadership Group made up of the County Executive, the Montgomery County Public School (MCPS) Superintendent, a member of the Board of Education, and a member of the County Council. This Policy Leadership Group advises on policy priorities relating to children at risk of not succeeding in school, for the purpose of advising and guiding the decisions for the COF NDA funding. The COF NDA provides resources to support cross system collaborations and promotes public-private partnerships to aggressively close the achievement gap in Montgomery County and impact the social-economic determinants that affect outcomes for children and their families.
