Head Start funds will be made available to families to cover the cost of medical and dental care on a case by case basis, when no other source of payment is available. The Health and Nutrition Consultant (HNC) must approve the treatment plan in advance for any costs that exceed $500. There is an upper limit on spending per child, of $1500, which can be exceeded only with written authorization of the Executive Director.
This policy complies with Head Start Performance Standard 45 CFR Section 1304.20.
