Over $1.4 million in federal Head Start and Early Head Start funding for Ulster County

WASHINGTON – The US Department of Health and Human Services has granted $1.47 million for Head Start and Early Head Start programs at the Ulster County Community Action Committee. The money will be used to support child care services for low-income families in the Hudson Valley.

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 ages three and four, while Early Head Start serves pregnant women, infants, and toddlers.

The services those programs offer include early education, health screenings, social and emotional health, nutrition, social services, and services for children with disabilities.

Senators Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand announced the grants.
