Head Start's funding hangs in the balance...
Take one minute right now to send a letter to your Senators urging them to recognize Head Start's needs in fiscal year 2020.
Even though Congress understands the importance of the work that Head Start does, there are countless competing priorities, and they need to hear from you--their constituents--about what matters.
Over the next weeks, Congress will be making difficult choices about which federal programs should receive funding increases or decreases for the next fiscal year. As a part of that process, Congress is making decisions about Head Start's funding right now, and that means there are conversations happening about how much of a cost-of-living adjustment the Head Start workforce needs or can go without.
Speak up to ensure that the Head Start community is heard during this critical time.
