Resource Type: Executive Summary
Author(s): Avellar, Sarah A.; Paulsell, Diane; Sama-Miller, Emily; Del Grosso, Patricia;
Date Issued: September, 2013
Publisher(s): United States. Administration for Children and Families. Office of Planning, Research and Evaluation
Description: The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act established a Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program (MIECHV) that provides $1.5 billion over five years to states to establish home visiting program models for at-risk pregnant women and children from birth to age 5. The Act stipulates that 75 percent of the funds must be used for home visiting programs with evidence of effectiveness based on rigorous evaluation research. The HomVEE review provides information about which home visiting program models have evidence of effectiveness as required by the legislation and defined by DHHS, as well as detailed information about the samples of families who participated in the research, the outcomes measured in each study, and the implementation guidelines for each model. This executive summary provides an overview of the HomVEE review process, a summary of the review results, and a link to the HomVEE website for more detailed information. (author abstract)
