Early Head Start evolved out of Head Start's long history of providing services to infants and toddlers. To help design the new initiative, the Secretary of Health and Human Services formed the Advisory Committee on Services for Families with Infants and Toddlers in 1994. The committee set forth the vision and goals for Early Head Start that have been shaped by lessons learned from comprehensive child development programs, parent and child centers, migrant head start programs, locally designed Head Start programs and other early child development and family support efforts serving families with very young children.
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.
