This Overview of Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program (MIECHV) grantee-led evaluations provides a synthesis of the opportunity these evaluations provide to expand the knowledge base on home visiting implementation and effectiveness. The overview describes the importance of grantee-led evaluations in answering questions of interest to states and learning about home visiting implementation in diverse contexts.

Additionally, it identifies the types of study and the major questions the evaluations address, such as:

  • How to recruit, retain, and engage participants
  • How and why home visiting workforce development is beneficial
  • How to collaborate with community partners and coordinate services
  • How programs are enhancing home visiting
  • The effectiveness of promising approaches in home visiting

The Profile of grantee-led evaluations provides detailed individual summaries of each evaluation conducted from awards provided between 2011 and 2015 including their aims, research questions, and methods. The profiles are searchable by home visiting model, evaluation topic, and study type.
