Grant announced for Alameda County Head Start Programs

Submitted By Allison Bormel

U.S. Representative Eric Swalwell (CA-15) today announced that Child, Family & Community Services (CFCS) in Union City was selected for a seven million dollar federal grant for its Head Start and Early Head Start programs in Hayward, Union City, Fremont and other cities in southern Alameda County. The grant was awarded by the Department of Health and Human Services.

"I congratulate Child, Family & Community Services for receiving this federal funding, a recognition of the important services they provide to children. CFCS provides learning opportunities to more than 1,200 children in southern Alameda County who would not otherwise have access to critical early education, truly giving them a head start to life," said Swalwell.

Head Start is a federal program that promotes the school readiness of children ages, birth to five, from low-income families by enhancing their cognitive, social and emotional development.
