Head Start PIR Reporting with Apricot

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 ProgramTo 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. 

    What is a PIR (Program Information Report) 

    The Head Start Program Information Report (PIR) displays comprehensive data on an organization’s services, staff, hour estimates, participants (children and families) and demographics. All grantees and delegates are required to submit PIR report for Head Start and affiliated programs such as Early Head Start (Head Start for Preschoolno later than August 31st of each year. 

    Outside of the Office of Head Start, organizations are limited in tools to help them track and complete reporting requirements. Unless comprehensive tracking is a part of your organization’s day-to-day, finding and compiling information required can be time-consuming and leaves room for errors
