Early Head Start promotes healthy prenatal outcomes, enhances the development of infants and toddlers (from birth to three years of age) and promotes healthy family functioning. The program was initiated in 1995 in recognition of the mounting evidence that the earliest years matter most to children's growth and development.
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.
