Head Start is able to serve a small percentage of families whose incomes exceed the guidelines.
Eligible Requirements: Eligibility for the Head Start program is based on the following: Residency: Families must live in one of the following towns and cities to enroll in an EBCAP early childhood program: Newport, Middletown, Portsmouth, Jamestown, Prudence Island, Little Compton, Tiverton, Bristol, Warren, Barrington or East Providence; Age of the child; Family income level or special eligibility due to foster care status or homelessness
Age Requirements: Birth to 5 years old
How to Apply: Parents who wish to enroll their child in the Head Start program should complete the Online Early Head Start and Head Start pre-application.
