  1. What Does the Future Hold for Head Start? Cleo Rodriguez, Jr. Executive Director National Migrant Seasonal Head Start Association

  2. Thank you: • Maxine • Ed

  3. Washington DC Updates • Sequestration • FY 2014- President’s Budget Continuing • 2012 Re Authorization • Designated Renewal System • Performance Standards • Immigration

  4. Sequestration: • Still trying to determine impact • Must maintain quality • Going to impact children/families served • Send a message • % of cut yet to be finalized

  5. FY 2014 President’s Budget • Four core components: • grants to states to expand pre-k programs for 4 YO • expansion of HS for children aged 0-4 • additional funding for the development of EHS and Child Care partnerships • The plan expands voluntary home visiting programs that offer parents education and support, because parents are children's first teachers and central to their children's development (An additional $11 billion over the next 10 years).

  6. FY 2014 President’s Budget For FY 2014, the plan, as reflected in the President’s budget released April 10th, • $9.61 billion for Head Start and Early Head Start • $8.19 billion is for section 640 of the Head Start Act and $25 million is for DRS • $1.43 billion will fund expansion of EHS services, conversion of HS services to EHS services, and for discretionary grants for high quality infant and toddler care through EHS – CC partnerships.

  7. 75 Billion Pre-K Program (10 yrs): • Goal is to enable every American 4-year-old to attend a quality preschool program • The Administration proposes a new partnership with states that would provide universal, high-quality, full-day preschool for 4-year olds from low- and moderate-income families, up to 200 percent of the poverty line. • This expansion builds on a close partnership with the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

  8. FY 2014 President’s Budget • Begin work with President and policymakers on Capitol Hill to ensure that any new programs serving children are a high-quality two-generation, intensive and comprehensive for children and their parents and it targets our neediest families. • With 28 million lives impacted over 40 plus years, Head Start has demonstrated quality, experience, and success, and are uniquely qualified to offer our ideas on providing services to at-risk children and families.

  9. What can you do? • Thank the President for his strong commitment to EC • Invite you Members to your programs • Provide a photo opportunity • Provide a reading opportunity • Expose Members to your success stories

  10. Reauthorization 2012 • Likely not going to happen in 2013 • Atmosphere of Congress • Likely will be discussion this summer • Begin writing a draft • My best guess– Late 2013/2014- I recently heard 2015

  11. DRS- Cohort I & II • Cohort I: • Bigger Grantees divided • Most kept grants • Few still in negotiations • Cohort II • Many CLASS related Likely any changes will be done through Re-Authorization.

  12. Performance Standards • NHSA WorkGroup • MHS Representation • Met with Linda Smith • Met with OHS • On-going work

  13. Immigration • Moving fast • Daily updates • April 10th Rally

  14. Immigration • Majority of Americans reject mass deportation • Most immigrants have made a home in the United States • Immigrants are all over USA. Unfriendly laws do not equate to “self-deport”

  15. Immigrants are a net gain for our economy • $1.5 trillion—$contributed to GDP over 10 years with a comprehensive immigration reform plan that includes legalization for all undocumented immigrants currently living in the United States. • $11.2 billion—The amount of money households headed by unauthorized immigrants paid in taxes in 2010 (local/state) • $4.5 billion to $5.4 billion—The amount of net tax revenue that would accrue to federal government over 3 years if all undocumented immigrants currently living in the US were legalized.

  16. In contrast… • $2.6 trillion—$ that would evaporate from U.S. GDP over 10 years if all undocumented immigrants were deported or “self-deport.” • $285 billion—The cost of removing the entire undocumented population from the US over a 5 yr period, including continued border- and interior-enforcement efforts. • $23,482—The cost of apprehending, detaining, processing, and transporting one individual in deportation proceedings.

  17. So what does the future hold? • Great Opportunities • Partnerships • Impacting lives of young children (0-3) and their families • Change • More 0-3 year olds • DRS • Overall- I think the future is bright for Head Start– we are the proven model of success. We know it works!! We always rise to the level of expectation!!!

  18. Share some thoughts on Migrant/Seasonal Head Start Programs!
