MIECHV FY 2017 Innovation Awards

The FY 2017 MIECHV Innovation Awards were unlike any other MIECHV award – through a two-year cooperative agreement totaling $28 million, 19 awardees were given the opportunity through 14 awards to develop, implement, and evaluate innovations that strengthen and improve the delivery of MIECHV-funded home visiting services. A heavy focus was placed on the evaluation and dissemination of findings to all MIECHV Formula Award recipients, and aimed to demonstrate improvement in the following priority areas:

  • Priority #1: Recruitment, engagement, and retention of eligible families to MIECHV-funded home visiting programs
  • Priority #2: Development and retention of a trained, highly skilled MIECHV-funded home visiting workforce
  • Priority #3: Coordination of MIECHV-funded home visiting programs with community resources and supports, such as child health, behavioral health, and human services systems
  • Priority #4: Implementation of continuous quality improvement processes in MIECHV-funded home visiting programs
