Students will now have access to longer school day with increased funding

Head Start, a Tri-County Community Action Program, recently received an increase in funds to support the longer school day for Head Start programs in Berlin and Littleton in Northern New Hampshire.

Congress has appropriated $294 million in supplemental funding for existing Head Start and Early Head Start programs to increase the number
of hours and days of services offered to children enrolled in Head Start and Early Head Start programs.

Tri-County CAP Head Start has received a portion of this grant award to increase services to children and families of the North Country. Currently,
Head Start, a Tri-County Community Action Program serves 235 children/210 families throughout Carroll, Coos and Grafton Counties. With this new funding, 85 of the enrolled children will now be offered extended hours in the Berlin and Littleton Head Start classrooms starting in the fall. Children that attend classes Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until noon will now be able to extend their day until 2 p.m. starting in September. These children will also attend classes until mid-June in 2018.

"We are very excited to be able to offer enhanced services to the families we serve," says Jeanne Robillard, COO of Tri-County Community Action Program, Inc. "These hours will be more family friendly, especially for the working parents."

Head Start is a federally funded free early childhood program for families with children between the ages of three and five. According to the Head Start annual program information report Tri County Community Action Head Start served 280 children/265 families in 12 center-based
classrooms and three home base options in nine locations within Carroll, Coos, and Grafton counties during the 2015-2016 program year.
