Title: Tribal Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program Form 1: Demographic and Service Utilization Data. Description: The Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018 (Pub. L. 115–123). Section 511(h)(2)(A) of Title V of the Social Security Act, created the Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program (MIECHV) and authorized the Secretary of HHS (in Section 511(h)(2)(A)) to award grants to Indian tribes (or a consortium of Indian tribes), tribal organizations, or urban Indian organizations to conduct an early childhood home visiting program. The legislation set aside 3 percent of the total MIECHV program appropriation for grants to tribal entities. Tribal MIECHV grants, to the greatest extent practicable, are to be consistent with the requirements of the MIECHV grants to states and jurisdictions and include conducting a needs assessment and establishing quantifiable, measurable benchmarks. The Administration for Children and Families, Office of Child Care, in collaboration with the Health Resources and Services Administration, Maternal and Child Health Bureau, awards grants for the Tribal MIECHV Program. The Tribal MIECHV grant awards support 5year cooperative agreements to conduct community needs assessments, plan for and implement high-quality, culturallyrelevant, evidence-based home visiting programs in at-risk Tribal communities, and participate in research and evaluation activities to build the knowledge base on home visiting among Native populations. In Year 1 of the cooperative agreement, grantees must (1) conduct a comprehensive community needs and readiness assessment and (2) develop a plan to respond to identified needs. Following each year that Tribal MIECHV grantees implement home visiting services, they must submit Form 1: Demographic and Service Utilization Data. The Form 1 data are used to help ACF better understand the population receiving services from Tribal MIECHV grantees and the degree to which they are using services, as well as better understanding of the Tribal MIECHV workforce. Overall, this information collection will provide valuable information to HHS that will guide understanding of the Tribal MIECHV Program and the provision of technical assistance to Tribal MIECHV Program grantees.

    Proposed Project: Tribal Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home 
Visiting Program Demographic and Service Utilization Data Form.
    Title: Tribal Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting 
Program Form 1: Demographic and Service Utilization Data.
    Description: The Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018 (Pub. L. 115-123). 
Section 511(h)(2)(A) of Title V of the Social Security Act, created the 
Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program (MIECHV) 
and authorized the Secretary of HHS (in Section 511(h)(2)(A)) to award 
grants to Indian tribes (or a consortium of Indian tribes), tribal 
organizations, or urban Indian organizations to conduct an early 
childhood home visiting program. The legislation set aside 3 percent of 
the total MIECHV program appropriation for grants to tribal entities. 
Tribal MIECHV grants, to the greatest extent practicable, are to be 
consistent with the requirements of the MIECHV grants to states and 
jurisdictions and include conducting a needs assessment and 
establishing quantifiable, measurable benchmarks.
    The Administration for Children and Families, Office of Child Care, 
in collaboration with the Health Resources and Services Administration, 
Maternal and Child Health Bureau, awards grants for the Tribal MIECHV 
Program. The Tribal MIECHV grant awards support 5-year cooperative 
agreements to conduct community needs assessments, plan for and 
implement high-quality, culturally-relevant, evidence-based home 
visiting programs in at-risk Tribal communities, and participate in 
research and evaluation activities to build the knowledge base on home 
visiting among Native populations.
    In Year 1 of the cooperative agreement, grantees must (1) conduct a

a plan to respond to identified needs. Following each year that Tribal 
MIECHV grantees implement home visiting services, they must submit Form
