Head Start touches the lives of more than 130,000 children and families in the four western states of Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada, and the Pacific Region. Serving those children are more than 30,000 adults in a variety of roles. Each adult is essential to ensuring the child and families success.
The R9HSA believes in elevating the work of the staff in our local programs. Supporting you to achieve your dreams.
Each Year, Region 9 Head Start Association reviews the available resources donated to our organization and establishes criteria for eligibility to apply for available funds. For 2022 the following criteria will determine if an applicant may apply.
Funds won will be directed to your school for use on tuition, fees, books, and materials. The Scholarship and awards committee will review each qualified applicant to determine need and commitment to the applicant’s educational goals. Grant levels are differentiated by state the winner resides in.
All applications will be verified by an R9HSA staff. Agency Directors will be contacted to confirm applicants’ good standing with their agency indicated on the application.
For donations, please contact Ed Condon at email@example.com.

I have been to management workshops, not leadership training. This has totally changed my perspective and encouraged me to propel forward in developing my skills.
I am honored and humbled to be a recipient of the Region 9 Head Start Association’s Legacy Scholarship. The scholarship helped me get one step closer to achieving my goal of becoming a Head Start Director.
I took part in The disproportionate impact of COVID 19, and how to provide “real” support for black/brown children and families and I just want to say this was an amazing webinar. I hope we can look forward to further conversation on this topic.
Thank you so much for making events like this! I really enjoyed and learned so much teaching strategies to implement STEM in the classroom.
The HR Network was an excellent opportunity to network and learn the best practices from other HR professionals within Head Start programs. You will be amazed by the level of talent and experience of the participants.
The Summer Camp training was powerful and inspiring! Each presenter was very engaging, it’s hard to even pick a favorite session!
The Leadership Challenge training was very relevant to my work as a Head Start leader! Great facilitation; stayed with the program yet allowed time for individual and small group reflections.
