These sessions are designed to provide you with an opportunity to voice your thoughts and engage with senior officials from the Department on the following issues will:
The President's Early Education proposal supports Native American families with a birth through age five continuum of learning that starts with home visiting and Early Head Start-Child Care Partnerships at HHS and then is followed by preschool for all 4-year olds at ED. We are looking to you, in shaping this program so that it is culturally, linguistically, and developmentally appropriate for your children.
The American Indian Vocational Rehabilitation Services (AIVRS) have published a request for information (RFI) for input on a proposed definition of the Department's interpretation of "reservation" that would align it with the Government Accounting Office (GAO) interpretation.
The Title VII Formula Program gathers information through the Electronic Application System for Indian Education (EASIE) that includes student counts and applications. During the 2012-2013 grant cycles, some initial enhancements were made to the program, and additional work is planned for the 2013-2014 grant year. This will also include a revamp of the ED 506 form for eligibility. We are asking for comments on the draft form of this document.
