Righting a Wrong: Advancing Equity in Child Care Funding for American Indian and Alaska Native Families

The Bipartisan Policy Center conducted an analysis of 184 of the Tribal Child Care Plans and other data to identify ways to better meet the needs of American Indian and Alaska Native children, both living on and off reservations. Recommendations from the review include using a data-driven method to determine funding needed, funding and technical assistance for mental health consultation, streamlining the Tribal CCDF plans, and strengthening culturally relevant curriculum.
