Funding Source

Head Start programs are operated by over 1,400 community-based organizations. Grantees include school districts, universities, community health centers, city and county governments, Community Action Agencies, and other profit and nonprofit organizations. The U.S. government provides 80% of Head Start program funding through the Department of Health and Human Services.

The remaining 20% must come from community sources. This requirement helps to ensure that each Head Start program reflects the strengths, needs, concerns, and cultures of the local community.
