As part of Illinois' Learning Renewal efforts, Governor's Emergency Education Relief II funding was allocated to the Governor's Office of Early Childhood Development to support development of an early childhood awareness & enrollment campaign that has statewide reach. Grants were distributed by the Illinois Network of Child Care Resource & Referral Agencies (INCCRRA) & the Illinois Department of Human Services (IDHS) Birth to Five regions covering all 102 counties across Illinois.
United Way of Northwest Illinois' proposal for Region 8 - serving Stephenson, Jo Daviess & Carroll counties - received the highest ranking among those in our region. The organization was awarded an Early Childhood Education & Care Community Outreach Grant in the amount of $29,682 to provide outreach on the importance of Early Childhood in our three county region.
