The Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) program supports families with millions of home visits that strengthen families and communities across the United States.

Without reauthorization, these necessary services will be cut for families in need and programs will be unable to reach more families. Congress must extend the MIECHV program in order to keep these critical services going for families nationwide. We are asking for five years of funding with incremental increases until the program reaches the funding level of $800 million per year. We believe this is the best way to ensure stability for families, effectiveness of programs, and expansion of resources.

We need your voice. Do you want to make a difference? Contact your local legislators and let them know that you support MIECHV and programs and services like Healthy Families America!  For more information, visit the Home Visiting Coalition.
