Global consulting services company ICF announced the Department of Health and Human Services’ Administration for Children and Families has awarded it a re-compete contract to provide training and technical assistance to support Head Start programs in the southeast region of the country.
The contract has a value of $35 million and a term of 5 years, including an 11-month base and four 12-month options.
The award adds eight additional states to ICF’s Head Start program coverage area. The company now supports six of the 12 Head Start regions across 40 states and the District of Columbia.
In the third quarter of 2020, ICF was awarded over $100 million in contracts to support five other Head Start geographical regions. The program improves the services offered to Head Start grantees that enable them to promote school readiness of children under 5 from low-income families.
ICF works with governments and nonprofits to help strengthen communities, families and citizens by delivering evidence-based solutions with measurable impact. This includes providing program and policy services designed to enable positive student and teacher outcomes in early childhood, K-12, postsecondary and adult education.
