News & Resources

Check out the latest news stories on infants and toddlers, and find resources created and published by Raising Illinois members and its partners that inform our work and the work of the state’s early learning and care systems. 

Featured resource: Illinois' Early Intervention (EI) program provides critical services to children under age 3 who have or are at risk for significant developmental delays and disabilities. This February, Governor JB Pritzker’s budget proposal included only $6 million in increased funds in FY25 for EI. However, this is not nearly enough to ensure equitable access to the life-changing developmental services and supports that EI provides. Use your voice to advocate for a total of $40 million for Early Intervention in the state's final FY25 budget!
