State Information Request: States With Universal Pre-K

A legislative staffer asked how states offer universal pre-K (rather than pre-K based on income eligibility). Our response identifies three states and the District of Columbia that offer universal pre-K programs, in addition to nine states that have universal eligibility policies. To provide timely assistance to our constituents, State Information Requests are typically completed in 48 hours. They reflect an issue scan versus a comprehensive analysis.
