This list includes links to organizations, websites, materials, and other resources on issues related to home visiting programs and improved child and family outcomes.

HomVEE reviews the home visiting literature against established criteria and provides an assessment of the evidence of effectiveness for home visiting program models that target families with pregnant women and children from birth to age five.
The legislation that established the Maternal, Infant and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program requires that grantees demonstrate measureable improvement in at least four of six benchmark domains. HHS identified a list of constructs that grantees were required to measure within each benchmark domain and gave grantees the flexibility to develop their own performance measures for each construct. This flexibility allowed grantees to develop performance measures that were meaningful for their specific programs. These two documents summarize the benchmark measures selected by grantees.
The DOHVE Technical Assistance Team provides assistance to MIECHV grantees on issues related to strengthening their evaluations of promising programs, developing and adapting data systems to facilitate tracking and reporting on federal benchmarks, and implementing quality improvement systems.
Grantees (and subrecipients carrying out substantial programmatic activity) are subject to the following compliance requirements:
