Effective immediately, the recipients of Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits are included when determining Head Start eligibility. This policy change allows Head Start programs to reach families better, minimize the burden on families seeking public assistance, and coordinate benefit programs so that families eligible for one program can more easily participate in other services for which they qualify. Adding SNAP to the categorical eligibility interpretation is essential in addressing any barriers to equitable access to Head Start services for children and families.
