Two New Case Studies Highlight $100 Million of Dedicated Funding for Infants and Toddlers

This month we released two new case studies about how advocates took action at the state and local levels to secure over $100 million in dedicated funding for early childhood care and education. Each case study highlights the genesis, lessons learned, and successful campaigns for kids in Louisiana and New Orleans.
