Head Start has been a part of northern Arizona for over thirty years. The Northern Arizona Council of Governments (NACOG) administers the Program that has a service area of 27,000 square miles and includes the four counties of Apache, Navajo, Coconino, and Yavapai. The Program serves children zero to five years old who meet the required income guidelines. NACOG uses several program options to provide Preschool and Early Head Start services in 28 Northern Arizona communities on behalf of 1613 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.
