Eligibility, Recruitment, Selection, Enrollment and Attendance (ERSEA) requirements have confused Head Start programs for many years. For some provisions, the language alone is intricate and tricky to understand, but even those rules that appear straightforward can be difficult to implement and apply to real-life situations. This series will provide an overview of the ERSEA requirements, answer frequently asked questions, and discuss approaches to common ERSEA challenges faced by Head Start programs.
 
Part I: Who is included in the "family" and what is "income"?
 
The first webinar will focus on income eligibility. The Head Start program recognizes the many types of family structures that exist in today’s world, but that variety further complicates the income eligibility determination process. In this webinar, we will answer all your questions about which individuals to count as “family” and what money counts as “income” for purposes of Head Start eligibility determinations.
