(Recorded Webinar) Head Start and COVID-19

Duration: 90 minutes
Webinar recorded on: 4/15/2020

Like everyone else, Head Start programs are adjusting to the new normal that we are all living in the wake of COVID-19 pandemic.  We know that many Head Start programs have been forced to shut down regular operations for the school year but that does not mean the work is over!

Congress, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), and the Office of Head Start (OHS) have issued laws and guidance that Head Start programs must wade through and understand.  Please join the attorneys at Feldesman Tucker Leifer Fidell in this webinar where we will help you navigate the various guidance necessary to manage federal Head Start dollars and maintain compliance during these unprecedented times. 

During the webinar we will discuss:

  1. How closures affect deadlines regular grant obligations such as refunding applications and match requirements
  2. When and how should management include the governing body and policy council when making important decisions
  3. What are some of the important considerations for Head Start leadership with respect to monitoring under the AMS 2.0

Target Audience

  • CEOs / Head Start Directors
  • CFOs and Fiscal Staff
  • Compliance Officers and Staff
  • Project Managers and other Grants Management Staff

  • Identify key guidance from OHS on handling the COVID-19 crisis
  • Establish important steps that your Head Start program should be taking to stay in compliance and take advantage of the flexibility provided by HHS and OHS guidance
  • Understand how Head Start programs can benefit from the recent supplemental appropriation under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (“CARES”) Act.
