Indiana’s Early Childhood
Roadmap to Recovery
Early childhood education plays a critical role in Indiana’s road to recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. It is essential to children, families and communities, helping children recover from learning loss and prepare for educational journeys ahead while allowing their parents and caregivers to work.
With the input of programs, partners and community stakeholders across the state, Indiana has created an intentional plan for the use of its federal coronavirus relief funding to enable programs to regain sustainability, deliver two-generational supports to families, and introduce new system supports that build industry strength for the future.
Indiana’s Essential to Recovery plan is designed to deliver critical relief to early childhood education programs and Indiana families, accelerate market recovery and
reinforce the industry long term.
Of the total Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations (CRRSA) funding, 80% of funds will be allocated to relief and recovery, while 20% will be used to support system-building initiatives.
A Statewide Effort
Indiana’s Essential to Recovery plan was developed with the input of programs, partners and community stakeholders from across the state, as well as insights from promising programs and best practices being implemented by other states.
