Purpose

The Tribal Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program (Short title: Tribal MIECHV) provides funding to develop and implement evidence-based home visiting services in tribal communities. The goals of the Tribal Home Visiting program are to support healthy, happy, successful American Indian and Alaska Native (AIAN) 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.

Program goals:

  • Strengthen and improve the programs and activities carried out under Title V of the Social Security Act, Maternal and Child Health Services Block Grant
  • Improve coordination of services for at-risk communities
  • Identify and provide comprehensive services to improve outcomes for eligible families who reside in at-risk communities
  • Support the development of happy, healthy, and successful AI/AN children and families through a coordinated home visiting strategy that addresses critical maternal and child health, development, early learning, family support, and child abuse and neglect prevention needs
  • Implement high-quality, culturally relevant evidence-based home visiting programs in AI/AN communities
  • Expand the evidence base around home visiting interventions with native populations
  • Support and strengthen cooperation and coordination and promote linkages among various programs that serve expectant families, young children, and families, resulting in coordinated, comprehensive early childhood systems in recipient 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
