The Service Provider Working Group (SPWG) of the OAC advises the OAC on funding priorities, policy development, the planning cycle, evaluation design and plans, and any other issues of concern to the SPWG related to the Children and Youth Fund or the responsibilities of DCYF or other departments receiving monies from the Children and Youth Fund.
The SPWG will consist of at least 10 members, and will shall engage a broad cross-section of service providers in order to provide information, education, and consultation to the OAC. All members of the SPWG will be persons actively providing services to children, youth, and their families during the members' service on the SPWG. The SPWG will meet at least four times each year.
The SPWG will include members who are service providers who currently receive funding from DCYF, service providers who have never received funding from DCYF but currently provide services for children and youth, and service providers who have received funding from DCYF in the past and currently provide services for children and youth. The SPWG will include members with expertise or experience in the various funding areas identified in DCYF's most recent Services and Allocation Plan.
