What's Next for Great Start to Quality
July 2021
Pilot 2 Complete
On July 2, the second round of Quality Indicator pilots was closed. 129 programs from 91 cities participated in the second round, providing valuable feedback and getting us closer to final indicator revisions and rating options to be launched in fall of 2022.

We are grateful for the programs who took time to share their thoughts and each will be provided with a $200 stipend for their efforts.
