Tribal Research Center on Early Childhood: Please note that changes to the eligible institutions have been made.
The Administration for Children and Families (ACF), Office of Planning, Research and Evaluation (OPRE) is soliciting applications for a cooperative agreement to support a Tribal Research Center for Early Childhood that will provide leadership and collaboration to promote excellence in community-based participatory research and evaluation of ACF early childhood initiatives that serve tribal communities. Settings to be considered include home visiting programs, early care and education center-based programs, home-based and family child care providers, and Head Start and Early Head Start programs. The Center is expected to: (1) conduct research to identify needs and/or develop effective practices and integrated systems for ACF early childhood initiatives in tribal communities; (2) identify, validate, and/or develop measures of culturally meaningful inputs, implementation processes, and proximal and distal outcomes of those programs; (3) establish peer-learning communities for tribal research on areas of shared priority; (4) provide training and professional development to facilitate interest and competencies in research relevant to early childhood initiatives in tribal communities; and (5) provide forums to increase cultural competence and sensitivity to tribal voices in research and evaluation. The length of the project period has been modified from 36 to 48 months.
