Ensure that your Head Start or Early Head Start program is fiscally fit. Attend the Third Annual Head Start Fiscal Integrity Institute in Las Vegas, Nevada, on February 23 and 24, 2017, to make certain that your agency stays up-to-date on fiscal integrity requirements and remains in compliance with the revised fiscal management rules under the new Head Start Program Performance Standards to common fiscal integrity problems.
Sound fiscal management has always been critical to the success of every Head Start and Early Head Start program, but fiscal integrity has become even more important following the federal Office of Head Start’s recent implementation of the first new Head Start Program Performance Standards in over two decades.

This yearly training event features a new curriculum for 2017 with an emphasis on current developments and how you and your Head Start or Early Head Start agency should respond to remain in compliance with the new program rules and other requirements. The Third Annual Head Start Fiscal Integrity Institute will also examine common fiscal management issues and how to address these problem areas.
