Tribal Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program: Development and Implementation Grants: The Office of Early Childhood Development (ECD) within the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) announces the availability of funds for the Fiscal Year (FY) 2023 Tribal Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) Grant Program: Development and Implementation Grants. Funds will support 63-month cooperative agreements between ACF and federally-recognized Indian tribes (or a consortium of Indian tribes), tribal organizations, or urban Indian organizations to support the following: conduct community needs and readiness assessments; develop the infrastructure needed for planning and implementation of evidence-based maternal, infant, and early childhood home visiting programs; provide high-quality, evidence-based home visiting services to pregnant women and families with young children aged birth to kindergarten entry; implement performance measurement and continuous quality improvement (CQI) activities; and engage in activities to strengthen early childhood systems of support for families with young children.Home visiting programs are intended to promote outcomes such as improved maternal and prenatal health, infant health, and child health and development; reduced child maltreatment; improved parenting practices related to child development outcomes; improved school readiness; improved family socio-economic status; improved coordination of referrals to community resources and supports; and reduced incidence of injuries, crime, and domestic violence. The goals of the Tribal Home Visiting program are to support healthy, happy, successful American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) children and families through a coordinated, high-quality, evidence-based home visiting strategy, and to continue to build the evidence base for home visiting in tribal communities. ACF and the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), the agencies collaborating to implement the Tribal Home Visiting program within the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), also intend for the program to result in 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.This funding is intended for tribal entities that do not have prior experience with implementing evidence based home visiting models, performance measurement systems, and CQI activities.This funding is intended for tribal entities that do not have prior experience with implementing evidence-based home visiting programs and are not currently implementing a program. A separate NOFO (Tribal MIECHV Grant Program: Implementation and Expansion Grants, HHS-2023-ACF-ECD-TH-0241) will be available for entities with such prior experience.
