The POC’s mission is to develop services that embrace children and youth and work toward long-term social change.
About this Board / Commission
The Planning and Oversight Committee (POC) is the public body with oversight for the City’s Kids First voter initiative, the Oakland Fund for Children and Youth (OFCY), which was passed in 1996. The POC oversees an annual grant-making process that results in a recommended package of grants for public and community based agencies to provide direct services. The POC guides the development of the OFCY strategic plan every three years and the annual evaluation of grant programs. The POC is composed of 9 adult and 8 youth members, appointed by the Mayor and City Council.
