The Tribal Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting program provides grants to tribal organizations to develop, implement, and evaluate home visiting programs in American Indian and Alaska Native communities.
The Tribal Home Visiting program is funded by a 3 percent set-aside from the larger Federal Home Visiting (MIECHV) program. Tribal Home Visiting grants are awarded to Indian tribes, consortia of tribes, tribal organizations, and urban Indian organizations.
The Tribal Home Visiting Program released the issue brief “Cultural Enrichments, Enhancements , and Adaptations of Tribal Home Visiting Programs” in October, 2016. This issue brief describes the various ways that Tribal Home Visiting programs have integrated cultural approaches in their implementation of evidence-based home visiting models. The brief discusses the importance of cultural enrichments as well as providing examples from Tribal Home Visiting grantees.Read full brief here!
