The Maternal, Infant and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program is an exciting opportunity to help build the portion of the Great Start system that provides programs for pregnant women, parents and caregivers, and children from birth to 8 years of age in order to improve health and development outcomes. This grant requires that the State collaborate with existing early childhood system building efforts like Head Start-State Collaboration, Project LAUNCH, and the activities funded under the auspices of the Great Start Early Learning Advisory Council. State departments and agencies worked collaboratively to apply for the Federal funding and continue to work collaboratively to strengthen and improve the home visiting system.
