Head Start State Supplementary Grant Program
Established in 1965, Head Start is a comprehensive child development program that serves children from birth to age 5 and their families. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families, programs are child-focused and have the overall goal of increasing the school readiness of young children in low-income families.
