What's New at IECAM: IECAM Provides Data for Cost Model Report

Published: November 19, 2021

IECAM recently provided data for an updated cost model report for the Governor’s Office of Early Childhood Development. The report estimates how much it would cost to fully fund a high quality, comprehensive ECEC system in Illinois; one that provides affordable and accessible ECEC to all families with a well-compensated and highly-qualified workforce.

IECAM data helped guide estimates of the number of children enrolled in a variety of ECEC programs, according to age and family work status and income. IECAM also provided core demographic information such as age, population, and federal poverty level numbers.
