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.
