Alamogordo Daily News: Native American Head Start program gets funding

An Albuquerque organization will receive more than $820,000 from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for its Early Head Start program.
Native American Professional Parent Resources serves more than 70 families, including expectant moms and families with infants and toddlers. The funds will be used to expand its services.

U.S. Sen. Tom Udall announced the funding this week. The New Mexico Democrat says most families living in poverty have difficulty accessing resources to support their children’s development.
