Great Start for All Minnesota Children Task Force

The Great Start for All Minnesota Children Task Force was proposed by early care and education advocates and legislators, and signed into law in 2021 by Governor Walz. The legislation establishing the Task Force had bipartisan support. The purpose of the Task Force was to develop a state plan to accomplish the goal for “all families to have access to affordable, high-quality early care and education that enriches, nurtures, and supports children and their families” (Minnesota 2021 Session Law, First Special Session, Chapter 7, Article 14, Section 18, Subd. 2). The Task Force was comprised of 11 voting members appointed by the Governor, 4 voting members appointed by legislative leadership, and 22 non-voting members appointed by varying individuals.

The Task Force completed their work by the statutory deadline of February 1, 2023. You can find their final materials here:
