Hoeven Announces More Than $2 Million in Federal Funding for Head Start and Early Head Start Programs in Dickinson Area

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven today announced that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has awarded the Community Action Partnership in Dickinson with $2,081,217 in federal funding to support Head Start and Early Head Start programs in the region. 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.

“Investing in early education programs helps to ensure that we build a strong foundation for our children’s success,” said Hoeven. “These funds will provide our youngest citizens with health and education services to help prepare them for the future.”

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.
