So it begins: The Department of Health and Human Services today officially announced Head Start funding opportunities in 97 geographic areas across the country where current grantees have been identified for designation renewal. Applicants, including current grantees, will have 90 days to prepare their applications, longer than the 60 days many expected. A separate group of 100 funding opportunities will be announced in in May.
HHS has also set up a resource site for organizations applying or re-applying for a grant.
I’m on the road today and haven’t had much chance to look further at the site or the applications, but will say more when I have the chance.
