Tribal Early Learning Initiative Grantees

The TELI grantees participate in all three of ACF’s tribal early learning and development programs, or have all three programs in at least one of the communities they serve through their Tribal Home Visiting grant. The tribal early learning and development programs are:

  • American Indian and Alaska Native (AIAN) Head Start/Early Head Start,
  • Tribal Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF), and
  • Tribal Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting (Tribal MIECHV)

Tribes focus their TELI activities on improving collaboration across these three programs and may bring in other partners as well. Grantees receive small incentive awards, as well as in-person and remote technical assistance and support to help them in developing their TELI partnerships
