Agenda Item #25
Head Start Refunding Application
Each year, the district must submit an application for continued refunding of the Head Start grant that was awarded to Brevard Public Schools in May, 2012. The refunding application for the budget period 5/1/2013-4/30/2014 is due 2/1/2013.
The total amount of the grant for the new budget period is $4,666,817. This funding provides Head Start program services for 624 preschool children. There is a local required match from state, local or other funding sources. The specific percentage of funds that must be contributed is 20% of the total approved cost of the project. The identified match will not create additional spending from local funds as this requirement will be satisfied through in-kind services and existing budgeted expenses that are not state or federally mandated.
A complete copy of the Head Start refunding application is available in the Office of Early Childhood and Title I Programs.
Approve the district's application for continued refunding of the Head Start grant in the amount of $4,666,817.
