Head Start Advocacy Letter – Parent – REVISED 5-12-2022


Minimum wage continues to increase with eligibility for Head Start remaining flat leaving more and more children unable to participate in this effective program.   Above you will find links to letter templates from the perspective of a Community Member and from the perspective of a Parent requesting that eligibility be raised to 200% of FPL.

Please consider pasting the contents of this letter, along with your contact information, into the email from to Congressman Chris Jacobs of our 27th District. You can find this form here:

If you know people outside our district who would like to advocate, they can  visit to find their respective reps.

There is power in numbers!  Please spread the word!  Thank you.
