The Congress of the United States authorizes the amount of federal spending for Head Start each year. The Head Start program is administered by the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) within the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). Federal grants are awarded directly to public agencies, private nonprofit and for-profit organizations, tribal governments, and school systems for the purpose of operating Head Start programs in local communities.
Our Head Start program is funded for programmatic costs AND training and technical assistance which includes support for ongoing training for staff.
You can refer to the Annual Report for specific funding amounts per year.
