“I am excited to see this program flourish with federal assistance.”

WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Nick Langworthy is proud to announce a federal grant from the Department of Health and Human Services to Cattaraugus County Project Head Start Inc. in the amount of $2,171,501.

“I was proud to support and deliver over $2 million to the Cattaraugus County Project Head Start,” said Congressman Langworthy. “Head Start programming is essential to Cattaraugus County families and this funding will ensure children have the best opportunity to learn and be nurtured. I am excited to see this program flourish with federal assistance.”

Head Start is based on the premise that all children share certain needs and that children of income eligible families, in particular, can benefit from a comprehensive developmental program to meet those needs. The program maximizes the strengths and unique experiences of each child. The family, which is the principal influence on the child’s development, is a direct participant in the program.

Congressman Nick Langworthy represents the 23rd Congressional District of New York which includes Allegany, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Chemung, Schuyler, and Steuben Counties and parts of Erie County. Visit
