American Indian and Alaska Native Head Start Expansion

The Administration for Children and Families (ACF), Office of Head Start (OHS), solicits applications from existing federally funded American Indian and Alaska Native (AIAN) Head Start agencies to compete for funds that are available to provide services to unserved children and families residing in the


defined Federally-approved service areas.

This expansion is primarily to increase the number of pre-school age children served in AIAN Head Start.

However, AIAN grantees that currently operate an Early Head Start program may, consistent with statutory authority found at Section 640(a)(3)(A)(i)(II), apply under this announcement to expand their Early Head Start enrollment.

All AIAN Grantees as well as other eligible agencies will be given an opportunity to establish new Early Head Start programs in a separate announcement.

Each grantee currently has a defined, approved service area and may apply to serve additional low-income children in that area.
