a system for regulating, maintaining, and supporting Indian foster and adoptive homes, including a subsidy program under which Indian adoptive children may be provided support comparable to that for which they would be eligible as Indian foster children, taking into account the appropriate State standards of support for maintenance and medical needs;
the operation and maintenance of facilities and services for counseling and treatment of Indian families and Indian foster and adoptive children;
family assistance, including homemaker and home counselors, day care, afterschool care, and employment, recreational activities, and respite care; and
