Funding Description

The funds in the amount of $10.3 million in federal Child Care and Development Funds have been appropriated for the purpose of QRIS consortia to provide training, technical assistance, and resources to help infant and toddler child care providers meet a higher tier of quality as determined by their local QRIS rating matrix.
