The Tribal Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program (Short title: Tribal MIECHV) provides funding to implement and expand 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.

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
  • Reduced incidence of injuries, crime, and domestic violence

Funds will be used to support:

  • Conducting or updating a coordinated community needs and readiness assessment of at-risk tribal communities through a collaborative process that engages all relevant stakeholders
  • Collaborative planning efforts to address identified needs by developing capacity and infrastructure to fully plan and implement high-quality home visiting programs
  • Providing high-quality culturally relevant, evidence-based home visiting services to expectant families, and parents and primary caregivers of young children aged birth to kindergarten entry
  • Engaging in activities to support stronger early childhood systems and cross-program collaboration in tribal communities to maximize the success of home visiting programs and support the comprehensive needs of the target population
  • Engaging in evaluation activities

Eligible applicants include federally recognized tribes, consortium of tribes, tribal organizations, and urban Indian organizations.
