Invest in Early Childhood Assessment

Find funding for myIGDIs

The increase in state and federal funding for high-quality early childhood programs recognizes that the foundation for success in school is established well before children enter kindergarten. Identifying preschool children who are at risk of poor learning outcomes and monitoring their growth and development is key to building the skills they will need as they progress through school.

As a research-based tool for screening and progress monitoring, myIGDIs meets the criteria for a range of funding sources. Renaissance’s funding team has created several resources to assist you in finding, applying for, and securing funding for myIGDIs.
