The Administration for Children and Families, Office of Child Care (OCC) solicits applications for the Native Hawaiian Child Care Grant.
The purpose of this grant is to provide
child care services to Native Hawaiians who are not currently receiving child care services funded by other Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) formula recipients.
This $1 million grant will be awarded competitively to a private non-profit organization to provide child care services to Native Hawaiian children and families in the state of Hawaii.
The funding will support child care services to eligible children, which must be under the age of 13 and reside with a family whose income does not exceed 85 percent of the State Median Income (or Tribal Median Income) for a family of the same size and whose parent(s) are working or attending a job training or educational program or who receive or need to receive protective services.
OCC will award a $1 million grant under a separate notice of funding opportunity (NOFO) (HHS-2022-ACF-OCC-YN-0091) to a private non-profit organization that provides child care services to Native Hawaiian and/or American Indian youth from federally recognized Indian tribes who are not currently receiving child care services funded by CCDF recipients.
Eligible applicants may apply for funding under both NOFOs, but will only receive an award under one.
