The Passaic Head Start program serves 240 children representing 237 families from the City of Passaic. These families are primarily working families, former TANF families or are presently receiving TANF services. They are low income families raising their children in an urban community which is densely populated and has almost a zero rental vacancy rate.
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.
