Home Visiting Programs
In 2011, the Arkansas Department of Health’s Family Health Branch was awarded a grant through the Health Services and Resources Administration’s (HRSA) Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Education (MIECHV) program. The grant supported the implementation of five home visiting models that provide evidence-based and promising practice programming to Arkansas families during pregnancy and until the children enter kindergarten. The HRSA MIECHV grant continues to support these programs across Arkansas.
