Congressman Chris Collins Announces $2,800,426 In Federal Funding For The Community Action Of Orleans and Genesee
Feb 8, 2019 Press Release
Williamsville, NY – Congressman Chris Collins (NY-27) today announced $2,800,426 in federal funding for the Community Action of Orleans and Genesee, Inc. The grant was awarded through the Head Start Projects Program from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, which promotes school readiness of children under five from low-income families.
The Head Start program supports children in growth and development through a variety of services depending on the needs of the local community. Their programs are based in centers and schools, but also in child care centers and family care homes. Children gain the access to early learning for school readiness, healthcare needs, and family well-being.
“Children are our future and this program ensures that the children of low-income families can get a jumpstart on their education before kindergarten.” said Congressman Chris Collins. “This funding solidifies this program in our community for years to come.”
The Community Action of Orleans and Genesee is a nonprofit organization that has served Western New York for over 40 years. This organization empowers and provides opportunity for those who are not yet self-sufficient. They work with programs, like Head Start, to provide short and long term goals for children and their parents in the community.
The Head Start program has serviced over a million children in every U.S. State and territory, and continues to support 1,700 public and private nonprofit and for-profit agencies that provide Head Start services.
