Native Language Community Coordination Demonstration Project (NLCC)

The Administration for Children and Families, Administration for Native Americans announces the availability of Fiscal Year (FY) 2016 funds for the Native Language Community Coordination Demonstration Project (NLCC).

The purpose of this demonstration funding opportunity is to build upon the successes


of ANA’s short-term, project-based Native Language funding.

This effort is intended as a place-based demonstration that will address gaps in community coordination across the Native language educational continuum.

An essential aspect of this demonstration project is to support community capacity-building focused on the role and influence of Native language on Native students’ academic success, school attendance, and career readiness.

Projects funded under this initiative will ensure high-quality Native language instruction from early childhood through college and/or career.

Projects also will be required to provide appropriate and culturally-responsive curricula, Native language teacher professional development, and additional services and supports that are aligned, and implemented to create a seamless path for Native language acquisition across generations for educational and economic success.

Awards made under this FOA will be cooperative agreements since ANA anticipates substantial programmatic involvement with the recipient during the five-year project period that will include specialized and directed technical assistance and support across the cohort of recipients.
