Tribal Home Visiting Program
Parents as Teachers offers promising approach for Federal Tribal Maternal, Infant, Early Childhood Home Visiting Grant Program
This program is intended to:
- Support the development of healthy, happy, and successful American Indian and Alaska Native (AIAN) children and families through a coordinated, high-quality, evidence-based home visiting strategy and expand the evidence base around home visiting programs for AIAN populations.
- Support a coordinated system of early childhood home visiting in Tribal communities that has the capacity to provide infrastructure and supports to assure high-quality, evidence-based practice.
- Promote and strengthen cooperation and coordination among various programs that serve pregnant women, expectant fathers, young children, and families in Tribal communities (including AIAN Head Start, Tribal child care, Indian Health Service, and Indian child welfare) and result in high-quality, comprehensive early childhood systems in every community.
New Tribal MIECHV funding opportunity will be available in the Spring 2016.
