NITCCI has developed a QRIS Learning Community with 8 states to provide a forum for discussion, technical assistance, and development of resources specific to infant and toddler quality issues. They have worked with states on the planning of an Infant Toddler Specialist Network to assist the statewide implementation of QRIS by building collaborative technical assistance models to incorporate the quality specialist, child care health consultants and the infant toddler specialists for statewide QRIS implementation.
The BUILD Initiative has supported states in outlining system goals, infrastructure needs, state-local roles and responsibilities and have supported states in developing provider outreach strategies, choosing quality measures, creating data quality assurances, developing evaluation strategies and creating culturally competent systems.
The Alliance for Early Childhood Finance focuses on QRIS as a tool for system reform. The Alliance has supported states through facilitating planning and designing of standards, assessments, monitoring procedures, financial incentives and outreach. They have also provided comparative information and cost estimations.
