The Illinois Early Childhood Asset Map (IECAM) is intended

  1. to assist policy makers and legislators in allocating resources for early care and education programs,
  2. to make public resource allocation transparent by showing the changes in funding of services from year to year, and
  3. to provide a one-stop source for early learning and demographic data.

We provide information on existing services, the demographics of young children and their families, and state resources that serve young children.
