Block Two: Understanding the Hispanic Community In Your Area

Regulations on eligibility, recruitment, selection, enrollment and attendance in Head Start (45 CFR 1305), require grantees to conduct a Community Assessment at least once every three years. Grantees use the results of the assessment to determine the eligibility of children and families who will be given priority for recruitment and selection. This video provides a snapshot of a process and strategies that Head Start and Early Start programs may use to ensure that their community assessment includes specific data in addressing the needs of Hispanic children and their families.
