Within our Federal Grants practice, over the years our attorneys have garnered significant experience with clients who run federal Head Start and Early Head Start (collectively, “Head Start”) programs across the country. Our attorneys counsel these clients on matters stemming from the Head Start Act, the Head Start Program Performance Standards, and specific program guidance from the Office of Head Start (OHS) at the Administration for Children and Families (ACF). We also help Head Start clients to untangle the many federal grants rules on financial requirements, procurements, property, and non-federal share. We also help clients determine how best to prepare for and respond to monitoring reviews and audits. Our assistance allows clients to achieve compliance within these heavily-regulated programs, and to obtain the knowledge to be able to run your program effectively, efficiently, and within the bounds of the law.
