Community Outreach

The Office of Head Start (OHS) is searching for entities in several communities that are interested in providing high quality Head Start services. In locations for which no fundable applicants have been identified, we will be conducting community outreach meetings. These meetings will provide information about the particular service area and solicit participation from entities interested in becoming a new Head Start grantee and from existing Head Start grantees. We will post related information for each community as it becomes available.

The communities below are not the only communities for which OHS will have a funding opportunity. All funding opportunity announcements (FOAs) can be found on the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) FOA page.

Puerto Rico

OHS is seeking entities to serve as Head Start grantees in service areas where the needs of eligible populations are not being met, which includes the service areas currently being operated under interim management (CDI HS).

OHS held a community outreach meeting on Nov. 10, to hear from interested parties about the challenges and barriers to providing high quality Head Start and Early Head Start services in Puerto Rico. The OHS presentation is now available.

OHS will host another community outreach meeting in early 2015 focusing on the application process. For more information about the community outreach meeting, contact
