Report
Re-alignment and Re-purposing:
How can states maximize existing
funding to support cross-sector
QRIS?

Key Principles
• Most states already spend $ to improve the
quality of ECE settings
• Often these dollars are scattered across a
range of initiatives with different goals,
strategies, target populations
• QRIS can be a framework for aligning these
dollars so that the various parts of the system
begin to move in the same direction
Remember that…
• Resources can be people as well as dollars
(e.g. where and how can staff be re-directed?)
• Resources can come from a wide range of
agencies – not just CCDF or TANF
• Resources can be public or private (e.g. how
can I get my private sector funders on board?)
Think Systems
When developing strategies to re-purpose
dollars focus on crafting supports in a
systems-building manner that creates
incentives to:
• Participate in QRIS
• Improve program quality
• Strengthen (and measure) outcomes for
children
