Details
Head Start is a federally funded child development program for very low-income young children, children with disabilities and their families. Head Start was founded in 1965 as part of America's "War on Poverty." The program's mission was simple: prepare low-income, preschool-aged children for success in school. Head Start serves children and their families in urban and rural areas in all 50 States, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Territories, including American Indians and migrant children. Since its inception, more than 20 million children and families nationally have benefited from Head Start's comprehensive services.

Who is Eligible?

Children who are 3 to 5 years old are eligible for Head Start services. Pregnant women and children from birth to 3 years of age are eligible for Early Head Start services. Children and families who are homeless, in foster care, or receive TANF or SSI are also eligible for services. Eligibility is determined by Head Start program staff and some families may be eligible for services if they are determined to be at or below the federal poverty level. Some grantees enroll a percentage of children from families with incomes above the Poverty Guidelines as well.

Families are encouraged to apply.
