Twenty-one states are drawing on the Preschool Development Birth through Five Renewal Grant (PDG B-5 Renewal) to advance their early childhood care and education (ECCE) systems. These states are
undertaking a rich and broad variety of work with this infusion of resources. The BUILD Initiative, ZERO TO
THREE, and Start Early, all of whom are members of the National TA Collaborative to Maximize Federal
Early Childhood Investments, collaborated on these briefs to share critical early childhood issues that states
and their partners are addressing by using the information available in the PDG B-5 Renewal applications. These grants not only
provide immediate benefits and long-term systems implications for the states and their communities; they
also shed light on the state of the field, which we attempt to outline through this set of briefs.
