Applications for new Tribal MIECHV Development and Implementation Grants

From the Office of Early Childhood Development, Administration for Children and Families

We are very pleased to announce that the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) is now soliciting applications for the Fiscal Year 2023 Tribal Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) Grant Program: Development and Implementation Grants!

Funds will support 63-month cooperative agreements between ACF and federally-recognized Indian tribes (or a consortium of Indian tribes), tribal organizations, or urban Indian organizations to support the following: conduct community needs and readiness assessments; develop the infrastructure needed for planning and implementation of evidence-based maternal, infant, and early childhood home visiting programs; provide high-quality, evidence-based home visiting services to pregnant women and families with young children aged birth to kindergarten entry; implement performance measurement and continuous quality improvement activities; and engage in activities to strengthen early childhood systems of support for families with young children.

This funding is intended for tribal entities that do not have prior experience with implementing evidence-based home visiting programs and are not currently implementing a program. A separate NOFO (Tribal MIECHV Grant Program: Implementation and Expansion Grants, HHS-2023-ACF-ECD-TH-0241) will be available soon for entities with such prior experience (including current Tribal MIECHV grantees).

Applications are due May 1, 2023. More information is available in the NOFO:

Please circulate this broadly within your networks. If you have any questions about this funding opportunity, please email Farha Marfani (
