Tribal Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program: Implementation and Expansion Grants: This funding opportunity announcement provides Fiscal Year 2018 funds for the Tribal Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program (Tribal MIECHV): Implementation and Expansion Grants. Funds will support 5-year grants (cooperative agreements) between ACF and federally-recognized Indian tribes (or a consortium of Indian tribes), tribal organizations, or urban Indian organizations that are currently operating an evidence-based home visiting program and propose to expand or sustain their established infrastructure for home visiting services in tribal communities. This funding opportunity announcement is intended for tribal entities that have an established history of implementation of high-quality, culturally relevant, evidence-based home visiting services to American Indian and Alaska Native (AIAN) families and children, implementation of performance measurement and continuous quality improvement systems, development of early childhood systems, and conducting rigorous evaluation. Applicants may include existing grantees under the Tribal MIECHV program that are proposing to sustain services, as well as other tribal entities that can demonstrate past and current experience with conducting such activities and are proposing to expand services. During Year 1 of the cooperative agreements, grantees must maintain existing services to families while conducting a needs and readiness assessment and developing an implementation plan to respond to identified needs through sustained or expanded services (including developing a plan for measuring and reporting on program participants' progress toward meeting legislatively mandated benchmarks and conducting rigorous evaluation activities). During Years 2-5, grantees will implement approved plans to sustain or expand their high-quality evidence-based home visiting services; implement performance measurement systems and engage in Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) activities; engage in activities to strengthen early childhood systems development; and conduct rigorous evaluation activities.
