How Is Eligibility Determined?

Early Head Start, Head Start, and Pre-Kindergarten are provided at

no-cost to eligible families. Eligibility is determined by a number of factors, including family size and income, in addition to other qualifying indicators. Families receiving assistance and those experiencing homelessness are categorically eligible.

The first step in applying to our Early Head Start and Head Start programs is to submit a pre-application. Once submitted, an Intake Specialist will contact you to begin the process of determining eligibility.
