The Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) has released the FY19 Request for Proposals (RFP) for Preschool for All, Preschool for All Expansion, and Prevention Initiative (Birth to Age 3). This is a statewide re-competition for funds. ALL programs interested in providing services must submit a FY2019 application to continue, expand existing programs, or to access new funding to begin new services. If your program has already submitted a proposal for FY2018, you must still apply for FY2019.
The final proposals for Preschool for All and Preschool for All Expansion are due to ISBE by January 12th, 2018 at 4pm. The final proposals for Prevention Initiative are dueto ISBE by February 9, 2018 at 4pm.

Immigrants and refugees are among the Early Learning Council's priority populations, and ensuring that priority populations have access to high quality early learning programs is the charge of the ELC's All Families Served Subcommittee. The subcommittee has created guidance for early childhood providers to support immigrant and refugee children and families. The guide is available in English & Spanish, Arabic, and Mandarin. Early childhood programs are encouraged to review and understand resources and supports, which includes Know Your Rights and legal resources.
Additionally, Lurie Children's Hospital and the Illinois Childhood Trauma Coalition assembled resources and information for DACA recipients regarding their rights, understanding and coping with stress related to the rescission of DACA, and where impacted families and youth can find help.
