Maternal, Infant and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV)


{Young couple smiling in bed with their young sleeping child} The Maternal, Infant and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) program is supported with funding awarded by the Health Resources Services Administration (HRSA). Connecticut has made significant strides towards implementing a high-quality statewide home visiting program that is part of a comprehensive early childhood system. The purpose of this project is to implement, expand and/or enhance high quality evidenced-based home visiting programs for children and families who reside in high-risk communities. Through continued collaboration with multiple state agencies and private partners, Connecticut will build a quality, comprehensive statewide early childhood system for pregnant women, parents/caregivers, and children from birth to age eight and ultimately, to improve health and development outcomes.

Benchmarks and Constructs


The benchmarks and constructs are used to collect quantifiable, measureable, baseline, interim and final data from each of the home visiting programs to determine if goals were met. The Home visiting programs will utilize the benchmark data as a means to develop an ongoing continuous quality improvement program to improve services for families and maternal and child health outcomes.
