Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) will visit Martha’s Table, a Head Start facility, tomorrow with Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Xavier Becerra and Director of the Office of Head Start, Dr. Bernadine Futrell, tomorrow at 9:00 a.m. to announce the distribution of funding from the American Rescue Plan.

Because of the racial disparities in COVID-19 vaccination and death rates and the summer programming needs for all rising kindergarteners, Norton and the Office of Head Start are engaging in intentional activities with Head Start programs to move toward getting back to in-person services. The focus of the visit will be to highlight Head Start programs’ use of American Rescue Plan Act (ARP) funding to return to in-person services over the summer and fall.

Location: Martha’s Table
