Home Visiting Legislative Report

  • Public Act 291 (PA 291) of 2012 is an act to support voluntary home visitation programs. The Act encourages collaboration among state departments to ensure that home visiting programs across the state are effective and make certain that children served by programming are born healthy, and have the ability to thrive and developmentally succeed while matching their supports to specific family and community needs.

    Home visiting programs work to equip parents with the tools needed to overcome challenges, providing services in a family’s home. They nurture, coach, educate, offer encouragement, and refer families to services to achieve a shared goal: building a safe, healthy, and stimulating environment for their child.

    As a requirement of the act, the Michigan Home Visiting Initiative publishes its yearly PA 291 legislative report – which you can find in the links below.
