Hidalgo County Head Start Program

The link above is not operated by Hidalgo County. We have provided the link because it has information or features that may be of interest to you as a visitor to the Hidalgo County website. Some Hidalgo County Departments maintain independent websites separate from the county's main website, employing or contracting webmasters outside the Hidalgo County. You may have reached this page through a link to one of those separate departmental websites.

While not maintained by Hidalgo County, these websites still operate under the auspices of Hidalgo County.


The Hidalgo County Head Start Program is currently accepting applications for the 2016-2017 school year.
