Description: The Supporting Evidence-Based Home Visiting to Prevent Child Maltreatment (EBHV) initiative is designed to build knowledge about how to build the infrastructure and service delivery systems necessary to implement, scale-up, and sustain evidence-based home visiting program models as a strategy to prevent child maltreatment. The grantee cluster, funded by the Children's Bureau (CB) within the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, includes 17 diverse grantees from 15 states. Each grantee selected one or more home visiting models it planned to implement for the first time in its state or community (new implementers) or to enhance, adapt for new target populations, or expand. To support the implementation of home visiting with fidelity to their evidence-based models and help ensure their long-term sustainability, the grantees are developing infrastructure such as identifying funding streams and establishing strategies for developing and supporting the home visiting workforce. The EBHV grantees must conduct local evaluations to assess implementation, outcomes, and costs associated with their selected home visiting models. The national cross-site evaluation, conducted by Mathematica Policy Research and its partner, Chapin Hall at the University of Chicago, is designed to identify successful strategies for building infrastructure to implement or support the grantee-selected home visiting models (Koball et al. 2009). This report describes cross-site findings from the first two years of the initiative (fiscal years 2008-2010), including the planning period and early implementation of the grantee-selected home visiting models. The report primarily addresses four questions: 1. What was the state or local context with respect to home visiting as EBHV grantees planned and implemented their projects? 2. What partnerships did grantees form to support planning and early implementation of new home visiting programs? 3. What infrastructure was needed to implement home visiting program models in the early stages of the EBHV grant? 4. How did EBHV grantees and their associated home visiting implementing agencies (IAs) prepare for and implement new home visiting programs? (author abstract)
