Early Head Start home visiting and support for pregnant women


This fact sheet provides data about Early Head Start (EHS) and the program’s influence on child development through support for pregnant women. A map indicates EHS slots dedicated to home visiting by state; other charts provide data about initial engagement in EHS support by pregnancy trimester and the allocation of service types provided. Additional graphics illustrate home visitor workforce qualifications and areas of child development that are influenced by EHS home visiting. There is a program spotlight about Reno County Head Start in Kansas; and a brief description of funding through the Maternal Infant and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) program.
