Founded in 1964 as part of the War on Poverty, Head Start is the nation’s largest school early education program that promotes school readiness by enhancing social and cognitive development through the provision of educational, health, nutritional, social and other services to enrolled children and families. With a budget of $7 billion dollars a year, Head Start serves nearly one million low income (primarily three and four year) children each year.
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.
