Arizona Senators Mark Kelly and Kyrsten Sinema announced Wednesday that $4.4-million in federal funds will be going to Arizona tribe’s Head Start programs. Head Start programs provide services that promote school readiness for infants, toddlers, and preschool-aged children from low-income families. The Navajo Nation will get just over $406-thousand for their program, the Hopi Nation will receive nearly $59-thousand and the White Mountain Apache Tribe will get nearly $76-thousand dollars. Head Start programs support children’s growth in positive learning through different types of services in early learning and development, health, and family well-being. Head Start programs are available at no cost to children ages birth to five-years-old from low-income families, provide transportation for regular transportation, and families and children experiencing homelessness are also eligible.
