Early Head Start–Home-Based Option (EHS-HBO) Implementation Support

The Early Head Start-Home-Based Option is administered by the Office of Head Start in the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

ACF regional offices oversee the administration of ACF programs, including the Early Head Start-Home-Based Option. The regional offices guide the programmatic and financial management of the Early Head Start-Home-Based Option in their jurisdictions and provide assistance, resources, and information to the various entities responsible for administering these programs.
