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 is holding community outreach meetings on May 18 and 20, to discuss the federal funding being made available for Puerto Rico’s most vulnerable children and families. Learn about how your organization can leverage this funding to establish or expand services to children from birth to age 5 and pregnant women.
