Committed to the First 2,000 Days of Life
Early Childhood Iowa (ECI) exists so that every community in Iowa will develop the capacity and commitment for using local, informed decision making to achieve desired results for Iowa’s young children and their families. To achieve the desired results, ECI is made up of three parts.
State Leadership Board
To promote the vision for a comprehensive early care, education, health, and human services system.
State Advisory Structure
To provide advice and support to the state board, the Governor, general assembly, and other public and private policy bodies to coordinate state activities.
To enable local citizens to lead efforts in their area as designated by the State Board, and to administer grant funding to programs and services catered to young children.
