Head Start and Early Head Start accept applications year-round for children 0-5. Head Start also offers a prenatal program for expectant mothers. Children do not need to be potty-trained to be eligible.
Parents or caregivers who make 100% or less of the federal poverty level are eligible for services. Children with disabilities or foster children are still eligible if parents or caregivers make more than the federal poverty level.
Utah Community Action’s Head Start program serves Salt Lake and Tooele Counties.
Head Start is an equal opportunity program and does not discriminate against race, religion, or sex. Utah Community Action does not deny placement on the basis of a disability or its severity to any child. We do not provide transportation for students, however, assistance with carpooling or bus/TRAX vouchers are available.
