Military Families benefit from Head Start and ECEAP
With Memorial Day fast approaching, the Washington State Association of Head Start and ECEAP (WSA) would like to offer our deepest gratitude to our military and veterans families for their service to our country. Today, we wanted to let the larger community know that Head Start and ECEAP programs are welcoming of military and veteran families and provide unique services and support.
In February 2008 the Department of Health and Human Services made it is easier for military families to enroll their children in the Head Start program. The new eligibility rules require that certain types of pay and allowances to members of the uniformed services not be counted as income for purposes of determining Head Start eligibility.
