Grant to a Hawaii native nonprofit organization to provide childcare to low-income Native Hawaiian children (under 13 years). Applicants must submit an LOI before applying and are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended for childcare services for eligible children, who must be under the age of 13 and reside with a family whose income does not exceed 85 percent of the state median income (or grantee median income) for a family of the same size. The children's parent(s) must either work or attend a job training or educational program or need/or receive protective services.

Programs funded through this FOA must design a child care program that is child-focused, family friendly, and fair to providers. The child care program must adequately address needs and unique circumstances of the Native Hawaiian populations it intends to serve. OCC envisions programs to incorporate the following elements:

- Serving children in safe, healthy, nurturing child care settings that are effective in promoting learning and child development;
- Developing and/or implementing program standards to ensure health and safety and quality of care;
- Minimizing any disruptions to children's development and learning by promoting continuity of care;
- Promoting strategies that ensure an adequate supply of child care providers;
- Providing professional development and other support to child care providers;
- Promoting culturally relevant activities, including language immersion programs, the integration of storytellers, and cultural training for parents and providers;
- Engaging and supporting parents and other family members, including providing consumer education;
- Supporting parent employment and expanding quality choices available to parents;
- Promoting continuous quality improvement activities;
- Coordinating and collaborating with other early care and education programs, schools, and other services as appropriate;
- Ensuring program accountability and integrity; and
- Ensuring children's health and safety through announced and unannounced visits and background checks, by the state or other entity.
