The Tribal Home Visiting Program submitted its first report to Congress in February 2016. The report outlines the program’s approach, implementation, and findings since its initial funding in 2010.

Twenty-five tribal organizations have received grants to date. The report describes the grantees, the context in which they work, and the families they serve. It also discusses the important ways in which the grant has built their capacity to develop, implement, and evaluate home visiting.

The program’s accomplishments include expanding home visiting services to high-need families across diverse communities, demonstrating improvement in key child and family outcomes, and building strong foundations for early childhood systems of care. The report details these strides and shows how tribally and community-driven programming and decision making promote innovation. It illustrates the ability of communities to collect and use data, demonstrate performance improvement, and implement evidence-based practices.
