Program Goals

The goals of the Tribal Home Visiting Program include:

  • Support the development of happy, healthy, and successful American Indian and Alaska Native (AIAN) 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 AIAN communities.
  • Expand the evidence base around home visiting interventions with Native populations.
  • Support and strengthen cooperation and coordination and promoting linkages among various early childhood programs, resulting in coordinated, comprehensive early childhood systems.
