Now accepting applications for the 2021-2022 program year!
Children from age three to age five from families with low income, according to the Poverty Guidelines published by the Federal government, are eligible for Head Start services.
Children in foster care, homeless children, and children from families receiving public assistance (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families or Supplemental Security Income) are also eligible for Head Start services regardless of income.
Head Start programs may enroll children from families that have incomes above the Poverty Guidelines.
If there is not a space for your child at this time, ask the program to put your family on the waiting list.
