Washington D.C. – U.S. Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), members of the U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced $910,604 from the United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) for Community Action of Southeastern West Virginia which will support Head Start programs across West Virginia.

“I firmly believe that all children deserve a quality education and foundation, no matter their background. Head Start programs provide our students with the foundation to guide and support them throughout their early education careers. Programs like these help young West Virginians prepare for the future while acquiring skills needed to succeed in life. As a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, I will continue to fight for more funding that benefits our children and their futures,” said Senator Manchin.    

“Head Start provides children with the educational bedrock that will support their future success. West Virginia children deserve to be on their best footing as they begin school. I’m proud to support programs like Head Start that continue to help the next generation of West Virginia leaders,” said Senator Capito.
