In order to meet the varied needs of the different grant programs our TA Center serves, we provide diverse methods of technical assistance to support all of our grantees.
The purpose of this program is to improve outcomes for children from birth up to 12 years of age by developing, maintaining, or enhancing infant and early childhood mental health promotion, intervention, and treatment services. These services are expected to include:
The purpose of this program is to promote the wellness of young children, from birth to 8 years of age, by addressing the social, emotional, cognitive, physical and behavioral aspects of their development. It is expected that this program will provide local communities or tribes the opportunity to disseminate effective and innovative early childhood mental health practices and services, ultimately leading to better outcomes for young children and their families.
The overall goal of Project LAUNCH is to foster the healthy development and wellness of all young children (birth through age 8), preparing them to thrive in school and beyond. Project LAUNCH grants are designed to build the capacities of adult caregivers of young children to promote healthy social and emotional development; to prevent mental, emotional and behavioral disorders; and to identify and address behavioral concerns before they develop into serious emotional disturbances (SED).
The purpose of this program is to promote the wellness of young children from birth to eight years within tribes, territories and Pacific Island jurisdictions by addressing the physical, social, emotional, cognitive and behavioral aspects of their development. The goal of Project LAUNCH is for children to be thriving in safe, supportive environments, and entering school ready to learn and able to succeed.
This grant builds on the success of previous cohorts of Project LAUNCH grantees. Previously funded tribal and territorial grantees have demonstrated the need for resources devoted to early childhood systems and prevention and promotion practices in tribal and territorial communities. Tribal and territorial grantees have also provided evidence of positive impacts on young children and families when resources are focused on early childhood wellness in a culturally-appropriate and strengths-based manner.
