Urge Congress to support home visiting services by reauthorizing MIECHV by Oct. 1

Posted on September 9, 2022

The Maternal Infant and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) Program, the primary source of funding for New Jersey’s robust home visiting system, is set to expire. If MIECHV is not reauthorized by October 1, more than 5,000 NJ families annually could lose effective home visiting services that improve children's health, school readiness and economic security. Send a message to your Members of Congress now. 

Advocacy efforts have led to the introduction of The Jackie Walorski Maternal and Child Home Visiting Act of 2022 (HR 8876). Click here to send a message to your Member of Congress to support/co-sponsor this legislation.
