Kids in Circle

Select Head Start programs in the state are about to receive some financial help.


Senators Joe Manchin and Shelley Moore Capito announced more $1.8 million in funding today for head start programs in the state.

The funding comes from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Resources Administration for Children and Families. The Eastern Allegheny Council for Human Services Head Start in Hardy County will receive 1.7m, and the West Virginia Department of Health Human Resources will receive $125,000.  Funding will allow the continuation of established health, nutrition, education and social services to families and children.  

In a release today Manchin said we prioritize commitments based on our values, and said children matter the most. Capito said while we work to create economic opportunity in the state, we must continue to enhance the lives of West Virginia’s youth.
