Prevent Child Abuse America and Home Visiting Coalition push for budget extension of MIECHV and great beginnings for all children.
Prevent Child Abuse America and its partners in the Home Visiting Coalition are writing members of congress today to urge their support in extending funding for the Maternal, Infant and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) program. MIECHV supports evidence-based home visiting programs, such as Healthy Families America, that have been shown to improve the early health and development of children and to reduce incidences of child maltreatment. You can read our full press release on the efforts to extend funding for MIECHV here.
