Oregon Preschool Development Grant Birth-Age 5 Strengths and Needs Assessment


In 2019, Oregon’s Early Learning Division (ELD) received a one-year Birth through 5 Preschool Development Grant (PDG B-5) from the Administration for Children and Families, in coordination with the Department of Education. The PDG B-5 grant supported several state-level planning activities, with a primary emphasis on conducting a comprehensive statewide needs assessment to identify the current strengths and challenges of the existing landscape of services and supports for families with children from birth through age five. In February 2019, the ELD contracted with Portland State University’s Center for the Improvement of Child and Family Services to conduct the PDG B-5 Needs Assessment. This report presents the findings and key recommendations from Phase 1 of the PDG B-5 Needs Assessment. Additional information for Phase 2 is currently being collected in the form of a statewide household survey of families with children ages 0-5 and a series of family focus groups with priority populations. Further, Phase 1 data are being utilized to support an online interactive mapping tool that will enhance state and local capacity to understand community strengths and needs at the county, census tract, and school district levels. The interactive map will be built during Phase 2, which will be completed in February 2020. (author abstract)
