Child Care Development Fund Resources


The Arctic Slope Native Association offers child care services through our Child Care Development Fund in Nuiqsut, Atqasuk, Point Hope, Anaktuvuk Pass, Wainwright, Kaktovik, Point Lay, and through a memorandum of agreement, we assist the Native Village of Barrow.

Our Tribal Child Care Services aim to provide child care options for families and promote the health and safety of children across the Arctic Slope. If you are interested in learning about different opportunities to support your child care program or need to learn more about the options available, please reach out to us.
