NCAP - Head Start Compensation at CAAs

Monday, August 8, 2022
11:00 am12:00 pm

Join the National Community Action Partnership, the National Head Start Association, and CAPLAW for a webinar on Monday, August 8th discussing staff compensation challenges and solutions for Community Action Agencies that run Head Start/Early Head Start programs.

All CAAs across the country work to foster pay equity and manage compensation costs, but how does this impact different employees – especially when Head Start and Early Head Start staff receive an administrative Cost-of-Living Adjustment (COLA) or substantial increases in pay and other CAA staff do not? Join us to explore CAA compensation and benefits structure, current and future workforce needs, and what CAA and Head Start and Early Head Start leadership can do to attract and retain the most qualified employees.

The webinar will feature two CAAs sharing successful strategies they've implemented to ensure pay equity across programs while navigating program needs. CAPLAW will also join to discuss compensation guidelines and what options are permissible for CAAs facing these challenges.
