Looking for Data for Your PFA/PI Grant Application?


To help grant proposal applicants and writers to find data for their Statement of Need, we have created a convenient table providing detailed information on data availability, sources, and other information for each of the community characteristics indicated in ISBE’s FY 2019 PFA grant applications. In the far right “Where to find data” column, hyperlinks have been added to the search options, so the linked websites are just one click away.

IECAM has data related to the following characteristics:

  • Rates of poverty
  • Rates of unemployment
  • Rates of homelessness
  • Rates of children with developmental delays and disabilities
  • Rates of parents without high school completion/no GED
  • Rates of illiteracy/educational level of parents
  • Rates of teenage pregnancies
  • Rates of limited English proficiency
  • Rates of infant mortality, birth trauma, low birth weight, or prematurity
