Compliance with Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) Requirements
The Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) program is designed to strengthen and improve the programs and activities carried out under Title V of the Social Security Act, improve coordination of services for at-risk communities, and identify and provide comprehensive services to improve outcomes for families that reside in at-risk communities. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, § 2951, provided $1.5 billion for States and territories over 5 years, beginning in 2010, to deliver evidence-based home visiting services to eligible families with children prenatal to age 5. Program funding has been extended through 2017. Health Resources and Services Administration administers the MIECHV program in partnership with Administration for Children and Families. We will review compliance by States with terms and conditions of grants received under the MIECHV program. Specifically, we will determine whether States (1) used funding in accordance with Federal requirements, (2) adequately monitored the activities of subrecipients who provided program services, and (3) reported to Health Resources and Services Administration on the activities in accordance with Federal laws and regulations.
