MIECHV Program

Maternal, Infant and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) Grant Program

The Maternal, Infant and Early Childhood Home Visiting Grant program was developed as a national early intervention strategy, designed to help at-risk mothers and families provide for their infants and children within healthy and nurturing home environments.   In FY 2010, the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) awarded $91 million in formula-based grants to each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and five U.S. territories. The Governor’s Office of Children and Families (GOCF) was designated as the lead agency to administer the MIECHV Grant program for Georgia.  The overall goal of Georgia’s MIECHV Program is to improve child and family outcomes in Georgia by implementing evidence-based home visiting as a major service strategy within Great Start Georgia. This program is designed to: (1) strengthen and improve the programs and activities carried out under Title V funding; (2) expand and improve the coordination of services within at-risk communities; and (3) provide evidence-based home visiting services to those families who are most in need of support in providing safe, nurturing environments for children.  To learn more about the details of Georgia’s MIECHV program, visit the links provided below.
