HHS Releases Funding Opportunities for 97 Head Start Service Areas
Today, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced the availability of Head Start funding in 97 Head Start service areas across the country. These funding opportunities are consistent with new criteria for quality and accountability in Head Start programs announced by President Barack Obama in November 2011. These criteria were established through new rules that require, for the first time ever, that Head Start grantees that fail to meet rigorous quality benchmarks compete for continued federal funding.
