Early Head Start enrolls pregnant women and families who are income-eligible if their total income is less than 100% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines (PDF). Families who are homeless according to the McKinney-Vento Act, receive SNAP/EBT Food Benefits, Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), or have a foster child are also eligible. Families with infants and toddlers with a diagnosed disability or other special needs may still be eligible even if they are over income limits. Please contact us for more information.
