SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

One of the stated goals of the Tribal MIECHV program is to support and strengthen cooperation and coordination, and promote linkages among various programs that serve pregnant women, expectant fathers, young children, and families, resulting in the establishment of coordinated and comprehensive early childhood systems in grantee communities.

The activities of the four grantees are expected to result in models for tribal early learning systems that can be replicated in other tribal communities as well as to expand the reach and impact of technical assistance activities for the four participating tribal grantees.

In addition, the supplements will expand the reach and impact of technical assistance efforts by supporting and strengthening existing coordination and collaboration activities and expanding the scope of additional such activities in tribal communities.

Statutory Authority: Awards are supported by section 511(h)(2)(A) of Title V of the Social Security Act, as added by Section 2951 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, Public Law 111-148, also known as the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
