Through sustained investments in early childhood development, together we will continue to foster high academic achievement within our communities. I thank HHS for its continued commitment to helping Central Virginian children reach their fullest potential.”

  • U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS): $1,128,019 to fund Head Start programs in Culpeper County through funding to Culpeper Human Services.

Since 1965, the Head Start programs have supported nearly 30 million children and their families in local communities across all 50 states and the District of Columbia. From birth through preschool, Head Start nurtures participants’ achievement and well-being through its educational, medical, and nutritional services.
