CPQ Toolkit – Test 2

The CPQ provides reliable cost calculations and funding so you can respond to questions about the costs of implementing high-quality preschool with confidence.

Our Communications Toolkit helps you describe CPQ estimates and explain why policymakers and funders should invest in high-quality preschool programs.

Browse the helpful tools below for background on the CPQ, tips for making the most of CPQ data, and talking points addressing FAQ about costs and funding. We’ve also provided sample outreach materials, such as social media posts, PowerPoint slides, and press templates.

Have a suggestion or a question? Contact CEELO project leads GG Weisenfeld and Michelle Ruess or your assigned state’s CEELO lead.
