President Joe Biden's Build Back Better Framework includes transformative investments in children and caregiving, efforts to combat climate change, expansion of affordable health care,
and strategies to bring down costs and strengthen the middle class. The investments in early childhood offer universal and free preschool to all three and four year olds, funding for child care that will decrease the cost for families, and an extension of the American Rescue Plan's expanded Child Tax Credit. The Illinois Governor's Office of Early Childhood Development (GOECD) will update this page regularly to ensure the early childhood field has access to the most up-to-date information and resources on the Build Back Better Framework.
