This PowerPoint presentation is a part of a series of webinars that have discussed Expulsion and Suspension Prevention. This presentation discusses establishing Federal, State, and Local Policies.

These slides describe ACF's Early Childhood Training and Technical Assistance System Transformation

The Tribal Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program (Tribal MIECHV) is funded by a 3% set-aside from the larger Affordable Care Act (ACA) Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program (MIECHV). Tribal MIECHV grants, to the greatest extent practicable, are to be consistent with the MIECHV grants to States, including conducting a needs assessment and establishing 3- and 5-year benchmarks for demonstrating results for participating families.

To date, the Administration for Children and Families (ACF), in partnership with the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), has awarded 25 grants (cooperative agreements) totaling $32.5 million to three "cohorts" of Tribes, consortia of Tribes, Tribal Organizations, and Urban Indian Organizations. Grants for all three cohorts were awarded competitively for 5 years, contingent on availability of funds.

Early childhood experiences with homelessness have long-lasting impacts on a child’s well-being, but access to educational services can help mitigate some of these negative effects. However, federally-funded early childhood education (ECE) programs only serve a small portion of children who experience homelessness. Taking action to mitigate the impacts of early childhood homelessness is critical to ensuring all young children have the opportunity to thrive.

The Office of Early Childhood Development at ACF hopes these profiles, with 2014-2015 data, will provide information for local, statewide and federal conversations and planning toward the goal of ending family homelessness by 2020.

This letter was to stress the importance of providing home visiting services to homeless families and their young children within their tribal communities.

The webinar transcript will attempt to clarify common applicant questions by highlighting information in the Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) for FY 2016 Tribal Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program: Implementation and Expansion Grants.

While estimates vary day to day, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development determines that about 194,716 people in families with children were homeless in January of 2016 (about 35% of the total homeless population). Depending upon the definition of homeless (e.g., counting families doubled-up in overcrowded conditions, etc.), other estimates are far higher.
