For Head Start Programs and Supporters

of Head Start Programs

Inviting your Member of Congress or local elected official to visit your Head Start program is a great way to build relationships and show them the impact your program has on the local community. To help you with this process, NHSA has created some simple guidelines and templates for inviting your Member of Congress to your program, hosting a successful visit and appropriately following-up after the visit.

For Head Start Supporters 

The easiest way to begin to build relationships with your members of Congress is to send them a letter explaining why you support Head Start and asking them to support robust funding for the coming fiscal year. Check back soon for new campaigns in 2017,
