California’s common QRIS framework is locally implemented with $100 million in annual state funding, allowing every county in the state to join the QRIS movement. State-level resources support this locally driven model in areas including systems development, outreach and communications, and evaluation. Local and state leaders will share how they are leveraging the CA-QRIS Framework to take quality to scale and build a coherent system in the world’s eighth largest economy.
