The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (ACA) authorized the creation of the Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) program and required a national evaluation of the program in its early years of operation. That evaluation is the Mother and Infant Home Visiting Program Evaluation (MIHOPE). The ACA also required that the national evaluation present a Report to Congress in 2015, which will lay the foundation and framework for understanding future findings from the national evaluation. This document summarizes plans for the Report to Congress.
