Maximizing the impact of state early childhood home visitation programs
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.
