Early Childhood Iowa (formerly Community Empowerment) was established by legislation during the 1998 Iowa legislative session in an effort to create a partnership between communities and state government to improve the well being of families with children prenatal through 5 years of age.
This initiative allows citizens to decide what is best for children and their families in their own communities and how best to use Early Childhood Iowa funds granted to local areas.
