A Historic Investment in Early Childhood

Earlier this year Congress approved a historic funding increase for the federal Child Care and Development Block Grant, allocating nearly $6 billion to the program over the next two years. This funding, along with the ongoing Preschool Development Grant program, offers states a rare opportunity to strengthen and support early childhood systems for local children and families. 

Lisa Klein, executive director of the Alliance for Early Success, talks about the role state leaders will play in this process and how stakeholders at all levels can join together in a growing, “wholistic” approach to early childhood.
