The College of Lake County (CLC) continues to be at the forefront of early childhood education, and the Early Childhood Access Consortium for Equity grant, worth just under $1 million, will help the college continue to strengthen the workforce. The grant is funded by the Illinois Board of Higher Education and the Illinois Community College Board. It was created to support a recently passed law in Illinois (PA 102-0174). The purpose of the grant is to serve the needs of the incumbent early childhood education workforce and their employers, to advance racial equity while meeting the needs of employers by streamlining, coordinating, and improving accessibility of degree completion pathways for upskilling and to sustain expansions of educational pipelines at Illinois institutions of higher education.
