Community Outreach

Puerto Rico

The Office of Head Start (OHS) is coming to San Juan, Puerto Rico to discuss future opportunities for funding to establish or expand Head Start and Early Head Start programs. Head Start and Early Head Start promote the school readiness of young children from low-income families through agencies in their local community.

You are invited to learn about the funding available soon to serve pregnant women and children birth to age 5 and their families.  OHS will describe the competitive application process for becoming a new Head Start grantee or expanding your current program services.  We will also introduce Head Start and Early Head Start comprehensive services, program options, and other Program Performance Standards.

Puerto Rico

Following the presentation, we will facilitate a discussion on the barriers and successful strategies for providing high quality programs. OHS would like to hear from you about island-wide community needs and challenges specific to providing Head Start and Early Head Start programs in Puerto Rico.

We invite representatives of all interested agencies to attend this meeting. Head Start and Early Head Start programs can be funded through community-based organizations, municipalities, family support services, nonprofit or faith-based agencies, for-profit businesses committed to early childhood education, or other organizations committed to community development.
