Inviting your Member of Congress or local elected official to visit your Head Start program is a great way to build relationships and show them the impact your program has on the local community. To help you with this process, NHSA has created some simple guidelines and templates for inviting your Member of Congress to your program, hosting a successful visit and appropriately following-up after the visit.
If you have any questions regarding hosting a Member of Congress at your local Head Start center, please contact Frank Nolan at firstname.lastname@example.org
The easiest way to begin to build relationships with your members of Congress is to send them a letter explaining why you support Head Start and asking them to support robust funding for the coming fiscal year. Send your letter today!
Townhalls are a great opportunity to remind your member of Congress of the work you and your program are doing on behalf of the children and families in your community in most need of a Head Start. Download the Townhall toolkit.
