Delegate Announces $3.5 Million Grant for Head Start

V.I. Department of Human Services

Congresswoman Stacey E. Plaskett released the following statement announcing a grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to the V.I. Department of Human Services:

“This $3,537,408 grant provides the Virgin Islands Department of Human Services with disaster assistance for the Head Start program. This vital program provides many children from low income families with the educational foundation that is crucial for children ages five and under.”

“In order for our children to succeed regardless of their socio-economic status, we must ensure that they and their families have access to resources that will enable them to do so. Disaster assistance funding for Head Start aids in ensuring that the program will be able to continue operations despite natural disasters.”
