Data and funding gaps in tribal early care and education


This brief includes data about American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) children and the systemic inequities that they face. A table compares the AI/AN population to national averages for various metrics including poverty, unemployment, and college enrollment. The brief goes on to describe federal funding and evidence-based programs (the Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF), Head Start, and Tribal Home Visiting), and concludes with a brief look at gaps in the existing data about AI/AN children and families.
