Head Start and Early Head Start helps to build a foundation for children's success. Head Start/Early Head Start are comprehensive programs designed to foster the healthy development of young children from low-income families. The programs have grown from a brief, eight-week summer program for preschoolers in 1965 to a year-round program today, serving children from birth to four and pregnant women.
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.
