NALEO Policy Institute on Family Economic Success - NALEO Educational Fund

About


June 22-24, 2017 | Dallas, TX


A new Administration always brings with it a shift in federal policy and political priorities. As families across the United States continue to face need in relation to workforce opportunities, healthcare access, safe and affordable housing, and quality child care, state and local officials face increased responsibility and opportunity to build and maintain strong and vibrant communities. Many of the federal tools used to support the economic stability and success of working families and children face an uncertain future. At the same time, state budgets are subject to unpredictable economic conditions over the next few years. Given these circumstances, policymakers should proactively consider the impact of this environment on the most vulnerable families and children in the communities they represent.

In order to comprehensively tackle these pressing needs, diverse stakeholders and strategies must be deployed to develop a collective impact framework towards the best solutions and outcomes. Latino policymakers are poised to serve as policy champions that can spur the leveraging of resources, blended funding streams and resources in order to advance goals and priorities toward addressing complex societal challenges.

Through a collective impact approach, the NALEO National Policy Institute on Family Economic Success: Navigating a New Paradigm will provide Latino policymakers with a curriculum that will cover:


  • The State of Latino Families and Children in the United States
  • A New Federal Paradigm: Implications for States and Counties
  • Mobile Tour: Two-Generation Re-entry Workforce Model
  • Leveraging Opportunities in the Workforce Innovation and Opportunities Act (WIOA)
  • Sharing Best Practices for Collective Impact

Institute participants will hear from diverse experts across multiple sectors, as well as network with colleagues from across the country. The policy institute promotes the discussion and analysis of federal, state, and local budgets and policy priorities in support of family economic success. Participants will also have the opportunity to share model initiatives and best practices on how to protect and advance an agenda that promotes family economic success.
