The Administration for Children and Families, Office of Child Care (OCC) is pleased to announce the availability of funds for the Native Hawaiian Child Care Grant.
The purpose of this grant is to provide child care services to Native Hawaiian youth who are not currently receiving child care services

This $1 million grant will be awarded competitively to a Native Hawaiian organization to provide child care services to Native Hawaiian youth as defined in Section 658P(15)(B) of the CCDBG Act (42 U.S.C.

The funding will support child care services to eligible children, which must be under the age of 13 and reside with a family whose income does not exceed 85 percent of the state median income (or tribal median income) for a family of the same size.
The children parent(s) must either work or attend a job training or educational program or need/or receive protective services.
This year OCC will award $1 million grant under a separate FOA (HHS-2019-ACF-OCC-YN-1544) to an American Indian and Native Hawaiian nonprofit organization that provide child care services to American Indian and/or Native Hawaiian youth from federally recognized Indian tribes who are currently not receiving child care services funded by CCDF grants.
