Guidance for Submitting a Needs Assessment and Plan for Responding to Identified Needs (Phase 2 Implementation Plan)
Tribal Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program
Per the FY 2010 Funding Opportunity Announcement (HHS-2010-ACF-OFA-TH-0134) for the Tribal Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program, prior to the end of the 3rd quarter after the Year 1 award date, HHS must provide grantees with detailed guidance for submitting both the needs assessment and plan for responding to identified needs (i.e., Phase 2 Implementation Plan). Grantees are expected to submit the needs assessment and implementation plan, along with their non-competing continuation application for Year 2 funds, within 10 months of the Year 1 award date. This document provides guidance for submitting the Needs Assessment (Section 1) and Phase 2 Implementation Plan (Sections 2-8), as well as several Appendices containing supplementary information and resources. HHS will work closely with and provide ongoing technical assistance to grantees as they develop their implementation plans and continuation applications. Instructions on submitting the continuation application will be provided separately.
