    On December 19, 2012, Illinois Governor Pat Quinn announced the recipients of a $45 million Illinois Early childhood Education Construction Program grant, which will increase access to high-quality ECE services for children in high-need communities with funds for the construction, renovation, or expansion of facilities. The construction grant is a first-of-its-kind endeavor, marking Illinois as the first state in the nation to make this type of investment in facilities. The announcement marked not just a positive step forward for children in high-need communities across Illinois, but also the culmination of six years of advocacy around the issue for the Latino Policy Forum and its partners.

      Mamas for Mamas is a group of mothers coming together to take a powerful stand with and for other mothers to help create Little Ripples, a new and innovative early education program in Darfuri refugee camps. Approximately 7,300 children age 2-6 and exposed to severe trauma are without proper care in Eastern Chad.
