What is MIECHV?
The federal Maternal, Infant and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) program strengthens communities by promoting positive parent-child relationships that are proven to improve short- and long-term outcomes for children and their families.
This funding enables states, territories and tribal entities to develop and implement evidence-based, voluntary home visiting programs among their communities. Learn more about home visiting.
MIECHV-funded programs focus on services for families with young children living in communities left under-served and under-resourced, where new parents or caregivers are left at risk for experiencing poor maternal and/or child health outcomes. Programs must meet benchmarks set by U.S. Department of Health & Human Services that demonstrate evidence of effectiveness.
