Considerations for supporting the home visiting workforce under MIECHV reauthorization


Home visiting is a voluntary resource provided to pregnant people and new parents, through which families receive regular visits from a practitioner who gives them information about prenatal and early childhood care and offers socioemotional support. The largest single source of funding for home visiting in the United States is the federal Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) Program. Congress’ 2022 reauthorization of MIECHV has the potential to double federal investment in the program over five years, enabling awardees to better serve children and families by strengthening the home visiting workforce, in part through dedicated funding for workforce support.
