Subject: Final FY 2013 Funding Level


The final fiscal year (FY) 2013 funding level for Head Start is $7,573,194,006. All Head Start, Early Head Start, American Indian and Alaska Native Head Start, and Migrant and Seasonal Head Start grants will be reduced by 5.27 percent. The new FY 2013 funding levels for your grant are available in the Head Start Enterprise System, directly on each grantee's homepage. These funding levels should be considered grantees’ final funding levels until Congress takes action on a FY 2014 budget.

The Office of Head Start is committed to working with programs to ensure the provision of high quality services continue during this challenging time. We encourage programs to work closely with their Regional Office as they develop strategies and plans to move forward.

Thank you for your work on behalf of children and families.
