Grants to West Virginia public and private nonprofit agencies, including faith-based, and community-based organizations, and for-profit organizations to provide early childhood education programs to low-income families in eligible counties. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Eligible counties are Brooke, Hancock, Hancock, Ohio, and Wetzel.
The federally-funded Head Start program provides high-quality, comprehensive early education programming to low-income children and families so that children start school ready to succeed. The Office of Head Start (OHS) is offering applicants the opportunity to apply for funding to serve pregnant women, infants, toddlers, and children from birth to compulsory school age in one application. This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) solicits applications that seek to provide a high-quality, comprehensive program incorporating both Head Start and Early Head Start funding, or to provide services for Head Start only or Early Head Start only, in a manner that ensures continuous services and seamless transitions for children and families.
The goal of this FOA is to ensure an equitable distribution of resources to meet the demonstrated community needs of children from birth to compulsory school age, ensuring continuity of services and taking into account the availability of high-quality and comprehensive early childhood education opportunities (which may include public preKindergarten programs for 4-year-olds). This FOA provides applicants the opportunity to propose to reallocate funding between Head Start and Early Head Start based on both the needs in the community and the applicant's capacity and experience serving pregnant women, infants, toddlers, and/or preschool-age children.
Applicants may explore combining Head Start and Early Head Start funds with resources from other early childhood programs or funding streams, including state, local, and private sector funding for childcare, pre-Kindergarten, and special education services.
Please note that applicants responding to this FOA will be expected to begin providing Head Start and/or Early Head Start services quickly after award, with a minimal startup period, to support limited to no disruption in services to the currently enrolled children and families in this service area.
ACF intends to fund applications that demonstrate an organization's commitment and capacity to operate a Head Start and/or Early Head Start program that raises the quality of early care and education in the community and helps children start school ready to succeed. School readiness requires that children are cognitively, physically, socially, and emotionally prepared to continue to make progress as they enter Kindergarten. ACF is seeking applicants that are able to use the best evidence-based early education practices in their programs to support high caliber classroom instruction, home visiting services, and effective family engagement and health promotion.
