HCAP Head Start Featured in Pacific Business News for Receiving $12.5 Million in Federal Aid


HCAP Head Start was featured in Pacific Business News for receiving $12.5 million grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The article quotes:

“Early-childhood learning is a critical step in establishing a solid foundation from which our children are able to grow and thrive from,” U.S. Rep. Mark Takai, D-Hawaii, said in a joint statement. “Unfortunately due to increasing financial issues, there are limited child care and education services. With the rising costs of sending a child to school, it is crucial that we continue to provide support for programs like Head Start that provide an enormous, and affordable educational benefit to our keiki.”

Lynn Cabato, director of HCAP Head Start, told PBN that the grant came just in time for the new fiscal year, which began Wednesday. This year marked a transition from a three-year to five-year grant period, which could give the organization a better chance to receive continued support through annual reports, she said.
