Apply for Head Start

Head Start is a free preschool experience for income eligible families. In order for a Head Start application to be complete and processed and the child put on a waiting list, income verification is needed showing 12 months of income for parents listed in the household. 

Please note that whatever you mark for income on the application, you will need to provide documentation for.
