Quality Improvement Funding
Illinois Action for Children is committed to assisting child care providers in providing quality education and care for young children (birth through 12 years). One way to do that is with the Quality Improvement (QI) Funds. The QI Funds are offered through Illinois Action for Children to support programs that are choosing to work towards or maintain an ExceleRate™ Illinois Circle of Quality.
There are three quality improvement activities eligible for funding assistance: ExceleRate™ Illinois Cohorts, ExceleRate™ Illinois Training Stipends, and Accreditation Assistance. Please read the enclosed overview and the guidelines to determine which area(s) best meets your needs. Requests may be made in multiple areas.
