Officials announce funding for Head Start

STEUBEN, YATES COUNTIES--Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-NY) and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) announced Wednesday, May 2 $4,205,224 in federal funding for Head Start and Early Head Start programs at Pro Action of Steuben and Yates County, Inc. The federal funding was allocated through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and will be used to support child care services for low-income families throughout Steuben and Yates Counties.
Head Start and Early Head Start provide comprehensive child development programs for low-income children from birth to age five, as well as support and services for their families. Head Start programs primarily serve children aged three to five, while Early Head Start serves pregnant women, infants and toddlers. The comprehensive services these programs offer include early education, health screenings, social and emotional health, nutrition, social services and services for children with disabilities.
"The Head Start and Early Head Start Programs help make sure that children in New York have access to early childhood education, no matter how much money their families have," said Gillibrand. "These federal funds will help give some of our most vulnerable children a strong start in life, and will provide them with the tools they need to learn and grow. I will always fight in the Senate for the resources to help support New York families and provide a high-quality early childhood education."
