Organizations that specialize in early education know the importance of providing young children and their families the tools they need for success. To provide these tools and support, fundraising and grants are often necessary. Agencies such as The Office of Head Start provide grants to organizations, like yours, to support the children and families in your community during these important developmental years.
The Office of Head Start encourages early school preparation and readiness for children ages newborn to five and their families by supporting children’s growth and development in a positive learning environment through the Head Start Program. To become a part of the Head Start Program and qualify for potential grant funding, organizations are required to submit a Program Information Report each year of implementation.
