The purpose of this publication is to share the insights from Community Action Agencies (CAAs) that successfully and proactively integrated their Head Start programs into the overall management and operations of their CAAs. To do this, the National Community Action Partnership, upon consultation with CAPLAW and Office of Head Start, surveyed key stakeholders in the Community Action Network to identify cases of successful integration of Head Start programs into a CAA. These case studies highlight the importance of program integration and provide CAAs with promising practices of how to strengthen their governance, leadership, and financial operations.
