During PDG-I in 2019 the American Institutes for Research (AIR) synthesized the existing early learning and care (ELC) data and collected additional data to determine gaps and needs in the subsidized ELC program and related services. The goal was to produce a statewide needs assessment that would inform the state’s ability to target services to populations most in need and improve the system over time. AIR also updated its Early Learning Needs Assessment Tool (ELNAT).
