WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven today announced that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has awarded $1,745,426 in federal funding to support Head Start and Early Head Start programs in Jamestown. The funds were awarded by HHS’ Administration for Children and Families, which works to promote the social and economic wellbeing of families, children and communities.

“It’s important for us to invest in programs that help build a strong foundation for our children to succeed,” said Hoeven. “Today’s grants will go towards improving the health and education of our youngest residents and to help them achieve future success.”

As a member of the U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee, Hoeven works to support programs that supplement state and local efforts to improve student achievement in primary and secondary education, especially for the disadvantaged and those in rural communities.
