Options for Full-Day Services for Children Participating in Head Start . Funding Issues

03/07/1995

There are, however, two fiscal issues of concern to the collaboration. First, all of the contributions of Job Corps to the Head Start program are paid for by Federal dollars and cannot be counted as in-kind. Therefore, the Head Start centers in other locations must generate more than 20 percent in-kind contributions in order to supplement the in-kind generated by the Denison Job Corps Center Head Start program.

Second, Job Corps would very much like Head Start to take over the program for infants and toddlers. They are willing to make the same sort of arrangement to supply facilities, but Job Corps finds the process of funding their current program to be onerous and wants its funding to become part of Head Start.
