In the fall of 2017, the Office of Head Start made MAJOR CHANGES to the baseline and continuation applications instructions for grantees and their delegate agencies to apply for funding under the five-year project period. The changes include a re-alignment of the sections that are required for the baseline and continuation applications. The format for the new alignment is as follows:

Section I: Program Design and Approach to Service Delivery
-- Sub-Section A: Goals
-- Sub-Section B: Service Delivery
-- Sub-Section C: Governance, Organizational, and Management Structures
Section II: Budget and Budget Justification Narrative

Within each section, grantees and their delegate agencies will be required to address the applicable elements for the type of application. Version 3 of the application instructions includes the following MAJOR CHANGES from previous version:

• alignment with the current Head Start Performance Standards;
• flexibility in the program’s approach;
• special instructions for supporting documentation and community assessment;
• integrating information for school readiness goals, and parent, family and community engagement;
• special instructions for budget periods of less than 6 months; and others.

This training will provide participants with guidance and direction on how to comply with the changes in the instructions and their alignment with the current Head Start Performance Standards, including best practices for completing each element of the baseline and continuation applications.

Here are three reasons why you should participate in this training:
1. If you are getting ready to prepare your new five-year grant application, you will need to know how to develop your application;
2. If you are submitting a continuation application, you will need to know how to convert from version 2 of the continuation instructions to version 3 of the continuation instructions; and
3. If you want to ensure your application aligns with the current Head Start Performance Standards and expectations of monitoring, you will need to understand how to connect all the systems.

Remember, registration is limited!

Learning Outcomes:

  • Participants will know the changes to the instructions for the baseline and continuation applications;
  • Participants will know how to use data from the community assessment and findings from the self-assessment to address the requirements in the Program Design and Approach to Service Delivery section of the application;
  • Participants will know how to address each element in Section II: Budget and Budget Justification Narrative section of the baseline and continuation applications;
  • Participants will know how to align data in the baseline and continuation applications to the annual report to the public;
  • Participants will know how to fund the shared personnel and non-personnel costs with the data from the cost allocation plan; and
  • Participants will know how the baseline and continuation applications align with Office of Head Start’s monitoring system.
