HHS/ACF RIN: 0970-AC78 Publication ID: Fall 2019 
Title: Head Start Program 

This rule delays the compliance date for programs to meet background checks requirements and participate in their State or local Quality Rating and Improvement Systems (QRIS). HHS delayed the compliance dates for these standards through a previous notice in the Federal Register. Since then, we have learned programs could benefit from more time as they work to align with State systems to meet these Federal standards.
