PA Head Start Supplemental AssistanceProgram (HSSAP)


Pennsylvania provides additional state funding to Head Start grantees to expand their services so that more children and families are able to access Head Start services. The Head Start Supplemental Assistance (HSSAP) program has awarded existing Head Start grantees with grants to increase the number of children they serve or to expand the length of the Head Start day or year for children.

HSSAP has been in existence since 2004 and is administered by the Pennsylvania Departments of Education and Human Services Office of Child Development and Early Learning, in partnership with the Pennsylvania Key and Berks County Intermediate Unit.
