Tribal Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program Grants

The Office of Early Childhood Development (ECD) within the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) will be soliciting applications for the Fiscal Year 2024 Tribal Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) Grant Program.

Funds will support 5-year cooperative agreements


between ACF and federally recognized Indian tribes (or a consortium of Indian tribes), tribal organizations, or urban Indian organizations interested in developing, implementing, sustaining, or expanding an evidence-based home visiting program serving expectant families and families with young children aged birth to kindergarten.

Awards will support implementation of high-quality, culturally grounded, 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 participation in research and evaluation activities to build evidence around home visiting, particularly in tribal communities.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 MIECHV program are to support healthy, happy, successful AIAN children and families through a coordinated, high-quality, culturally grounded, evidence-based home visiting strategy; to continue to build the evidence base for home visiting in tribal communities; and to support coordination among early childhood programs serving AIAN families and development of early childhood systems.
