Established in 1981, the Head Start Sponsoring Board Council of the City
of New York ("HSSBC," or the "Council") is the middle source between the
City of New York's receivers of federal Head Start dollars and approximately
50 delegate agencies and 7 Direct Grantees which operate over 200 Head Start
programs throughout the five boroughs. Any agency receiving Head Start funds
from the New York City Administration for Children's Services are automatically
members of HSSBC. The Council is a membership organization with 2,000
unionized and 450 management (non-unionized) employees. The Council
is a federal non-profit tax exempt organization under the I.R.S. 501(c)(3) code.
It is tax exempt under the laws of New York State.
