The Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) Program was created to support voluntary, evidence-based home visiting services for at-risk pregnant women and parents with young children up to kindergarten entry. The MIECHV Program builds upon decades of scientific research that shows home visits conducted by a nurse, social worker, early childhood educator, or other trained professional during pregnancy and in the first years of a child’s life improves the lives of children and families. Home visiting helps prevent child abuse and neglect, supports positive parenting, improves maternal and child health, and promotes child development and school readiness.
recipients include the following entities currently funded in FY 2018 under
the MIECHV program: 47 states; three (3) nonprofit organizations serving
Florida, North Dakota, and Wyoming; and six (6) territories and jurisdictions
serving the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam, the U.S. Virgin Islands,
the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, and American Samoa.
