Head Start Grants

Expanding access to high-quality, early childhood education is a proven investment and priority for the Wolf administration. Pennsylvania’s Head Start Supplemental Assistance Program provides state funding to Head Start programs that serve three- and four-year olds living in families at or below 130 percent of poverty, or a family of four earning $32,630 annually. The programs provide comprehensive education, health, nutrition, and parent involvement services aligned to the federal program requirements. A listing of the 2018-19 competitive grant awardees for the Head Start Supplemental Assistance Program appears below.
