Head Start Program Directory

The Head Start program is administered by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Administration for Children and Families (ACF), Office of Head Start (OHS).

Agencies that receive grant awards directly are referred to as Grantees. Grantees may contract services to other agencies—these programs are referred to as Delegates.

Search results display the Grantee program name. When applicable, the Delegate program name is listed below the Grantee program name with a curved arrow to show the relationship to the primary Grantee (see key below results list). Head Start and Early Head Start programs are identified, as are programs designed to serve unique populations such as American Indian and Alaska Native and Migrant and Seasonal Head Start.
