Grant Proposal Home Visit Program

by admin on May 21, 2010

The passage of national health reform in March 2010 included a new federal home visiting grant program aimed at improving health and development outcomes for young children and strengthening families in at-risk communities. The Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program, enacted by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010, will provide $1.5 billion in federal funds over the next five years to eligible grantees, one per state designated by the governor, to support evidence-based, voluntary home visiting programs for pregnant women and parents and caregivers of young children.
