This program's purpose is to "increase the availability, affordability, and quality of child care programs in geographic areas/localities, which have been previously underserved and/or have unmet needs. Funding is available for up to two child care program grants: one serving Native Hawaiian youth; and one serving Native Hawaiian and/or American Indian/ Alaska Native youth from Federally recognized Indian Tribes."

Estimated total program funding is $2,000,000, with two awards expected.
