Description: As new federal funds augment existing state investments in home visiting, governors have an opportunity to integrate home visiting into an effective and comprehensive early childhood system. Several strategies can ensure that states use new and existing resources wisely to ensure more consistently high-quality programs that are better targeted to families' needs with less duplication of effort. Governors should lead efforts to: Promote coordinated planning and shared accountability across the agencies that fund home visiting and other early childhood programs; Develop research-based quality standards and support ongoing program improvement; and Improve data linkages to track outcomes and better target services.
