Children birth to five years old and pregnant women are eligible for the Head Start program (3-5) or the Early Head Start program (0-3 and pregnant women) if they are determined to be homeless, receiving TANF or Supplemental Security Income (SSI), or if they are in foster care. Another way to be considered eligible is if the family’s income is determined to be at or below 130% of the federal poverty level. The program does allow for placement of children whose households are over-income. Contact a Family Service Worker for specific eligibility questions.
Please be advised this is a shortened version of the LCCAA Head Start/Early Head Start enrollment application. Visit a Head Start Center to pick-up the enrollment packet, which will include a list of required items needed to complete the enrollment process.
