BUILD's EEQEL project seeks to deepen work in three areas 1) generating Quality Rating Improvement System (QRIS) models; 2) deepening financing options; and 3) creating communications messaging. Many state QRIS’s are striving to be cross sector infrastructures built out from an idea that began as a strategy to improve child care.  Come to this session for a robust discussion about QRIS models and the important decisions states are making as they create and innovate in building QRIS structures.
