  • Developing the criteria and internal structure for how they will evaluate opportunities for resource alignment and allocation for the Partnership and the Backbone.

  • Supporting a landscape analysis of existing resources impacting the Cradle to Career work of the Rocky Mountain Partnership and Backbone.

On-going, the FAN is charged with:

  • Monitoring and tracking resources impacting young people and ensuring the Rocky Mountain Partnership is informed

  • Identifying funding priorities on system-level improvement opportunities lifted by the Collaborative Action Networks (CANs)

  • Recommending action resource support to the CLC Steering Committee
