About the Early Head Start Expansion and Early Head Start-Child Care Partnership Opportunity

The Early Head Start-Child Care (EHS-CC) Partnership and Early Head Start expansion grants will fund the partnering of EHS programs with child care providers, as well as non-partnership EHS Expansions. It increases access to high-quality, full-day, full-year child care, including family child care, for low-income working families. The program supports the development of infants and toddlers through strong relationship-based experiences and prepares them for the transition into Head Start and preschool.
