Tribal Head Start Programs Receive Federal Funding

Posted: Updated:
An educational program on the Standing Rock Reservation received $1 and a half million from the Department of Health and Human Services.

The Head Start Indian Grant will benefit the Standing Rock Head Start program. The money will help provide employment and childhood services for children ages five and younger. Head Start director Carmelita Bear Ribs says the program is a vital part of early education on Standing Rock.

"One of the things that money is used for is to fund enrollment which is 332 children. We are very fortunate to have and be able to employ 85 funded positions, as we are considered the largest tribal program on Standing Rock," says Bear Ribs.

More than $1 million will benefit a similar program in Spirit Lake.
