[TUMWATER, WA — September 29, 2023] Capital Region ESD 113’s Head Start centers and other federally funded programs will remain open next week.

In the event that the federal government does not pass a continuing resolution bill, many federally funded services across our nation will shut down due to lack of resources and authorization. The ESD will cover the operating expenses with other resources in the near term to ensure students and families receive services they need.

The ESD will monitor the situation, and may revisit this decision based on the length of time the federal government inaction continues.
