ARE WE ELIGIBLE?
In general, eligibility is based on family income at or below the poverty level. Families with other situations including homelessness, and children in foster care, or receiving SSI or TANF also are eligible.
It is very important to contact the Head Start or Early Head Start Headquarters to find out about the local requirements for enrolling your child. Due to limited Head Start funding, there are not enough spaces for all eligible children. If there is not a space for you and your child at this time, ask the program representative to put your family on the waiting list.
