Illinois

In Illinois, we worked with the Sargent Shriver National Center on Poverty Law, as well as Voices for Illinois Children and the Center for Law and Social Policy, to assess existing state policies and model a wide range of potential policy reforms. We delivered multiple presentations, produced a report and coauthored journal articles.
