In March of 2004, San Francisco voters approved the ballot initiative Proposition H. The passage of Proposition H established the Public Education Enrichment Fund (PEEF) as law within the City Charter, Section 16.123.1-10. PEEF is a 10-year initiative that expires on June 30, 2015.
PEEF provides critical funding to improve the quality of education for the youth of San Francisco and is shared by SFUSD and First 5 San Francisco.
- One third of the total PEEF fund is allocated to First 5 San Francisco for preschool support.
- One third supports sports, libraries, the arts and music (SLAM).
- One third funds vital programs such as Wellness Centers, Student Support Professionals, Translation Services, and Peer Resources (Third-Third).
