On Wednesday, August 15th from 3-5 pm EST, Ted Waters will help your program comply with the often confusing eligibility rules. ACF's Program Instruction, HS-10-02, Income Eligibility for Enrollment, addresses how Head Start employees must determine and verify income eligibility. The PI states that programs "should provide annual training to employees responsible for determining and verifying income eligibility and to ensure that those employees are fully aware of the consequences established by the grantee for employees who knowingly sign a verification form that contains false information." So be sure to sign up your whole team for this webinar!
We'll cover not only the basics of the Head Start eligibility process, but also discuss the consequences of knowing violations of the eligibility rules. At the end of this webinar, you will be able to:
- Describe what the Head Start eligibility rules are (and, which are mandatory or optional);
- Observe where the pitfalls lie for your program in determining eligibility (including reviewing eligibility documents and signing income verification forms); and
- Verify if your program is in compliance with the requirements of the Improving Head Start for School Readiness Act, PIs, and the Head Start Policy Clarifications.
Tips for best practices will be included and your questions will be addressed.
Who Should Attend: Eligibility Workers, Eligibility Managers, ERSEA staff, Executive Directors, Head Start program Directors, and other senior staff, but all are welcome.
