University of Illinois Task Force Examining Effects of COVID-19 on Child Care Providers and Children at Risk

The Institute of Government and Public Affairs at the University of Illinois has assembled interdisciplinary faculty expert task forces from all three System universities to examine COVID-19’s effects on the state. Each group is collaborating on a series of economic modeling activities, data analyses, and syntheses of impact. Here are two recent early-childhood related policy spotlights produced by the initiative.

  • This Policy Spotlight examines how the pandemic is affecting child care centers and family child care providers
  • This Policy Spotlight focuses on child abuse and neglect
