Grants to USA and territories nonprofit organizations to provide early childhood services to families in at-risk communities. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take up to one month to complete. The purpose of the program is to support the delivery of coordinated and comprehensive high-quality and voluntary early childhood home visiting services to eligible families.

The goals are to: (1) strengthen and improve the programs and activities carried out under Title V of the Social Security Act; (2) improve coordination of services for at-risk communities; and (3) identify and provide comprehensive services to improve outcomes for eligible families living in at-risk communities. For a definition of at-risk communities, see p. 87 of the NOFO in Supporting Documents below.

Successful MIECHV Program recipients will achieve the following objectives:

  1. Implement evidence-based home visiting models or promising approaches that:
    • Include voluntary home visiting as the primary service delivery strategy 
    • Serve eligible families residing in at-risk communities, as identified in the current approved statewide needs assessment update; and
    • Target outcomes specified as statutorily mandated benchmark areas, which include: improved maternal and newborn health; prevention of child injuries, child abuse, neglect, or maltreatment, and reduction of emergency department visits; improvement in school readiness and achievement; reduction in crime or domestic violence; improvements in family economic self-sufficiency; and improvements in the coordination and referrals for other community resources and supports.
  2. Ensure the provision of high-quality home visiting services to eligible families living in at-risk communities by, in part, coordinating with comprehensive statewide early childhood systems to support the needs of those families.
  3. Collaborate with state and local partners to increase the availability of and eligible families’ access to coordinated early childhood systems and high-quality services.
