Early Learning Facilities Bond Proposal will Provide Necessary Capital


General Bond Issuance: January 2020

Rhode Island has an opportunity to invest in early childhood education to help close achievement gaps, support our working families, and better prepare our workforce of tomorrow. Equitable access to a high-quality early learning experience is essential to providing children with a strong pathway in school and life.

All children deserve high quality, developmentally appropriate early learning environments designed not only to keep them healthy and safe, but also to support their physical, behavioral and cognitive development. The physical conditions of early care and education spaces directly impacts the success of these programs.

Rhode Island wants to see real change in its early learning infrastructure and will require significant investment to support this initiative. To balance the enormous scope of the challenge with the realities of projects ready to move forward, a $15 million bond, as a part of the Affordable Housing Bond, has been proposed for the 2020 ballot.
