The goal of the Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) competitive grant program is to award additional funding to states that have sufficiently demonstrated the interest and capacity to expand and/or enhance their evidence-based home visiting programs to improve outcomes for children and families who reside in at-risk communities. Successful applicants will be awarded federal fiscal year (FY) 2011 competitive grant funds, in addition to the FY 2011 MIECHV formula based funds, to support the effective expansion and implementation of home visiting programs that are part of comprehensive, high-quality early childhood systems in all states. The purpose of this announcement is to promote expansion and quality implementation of home visiting programs to attain the outcomes desired.
These competitive awards will continue the Health Resources and Services Administration's (HRSA) and Administration for Children and Families' (ACF) commitment to comprehensive family services, coordinated and comprehensive statewide home visiting programs, and effective implementation of evidence-based practices by offering a competitive opportunity to amplify program efforts supported by the MIECHV formula grants program and other state resources.
Expansion Grants recognize states and jurisdictions that have already made significant progress towards implementing a high-quality home visiting program as part of a comprehensive, high-quality early childhood system and are ready and able to take effective programs to scale. States applying for this grant will use the funds to (1) expand the scale and/or scope of evidence-based home visiting programs and/or (2) enhance or improve existing home visiting programs. Approximately $66 million of the competitive funding will be awarded in FY 2011 for seven to 10 four-year grants. The total grant award may range between $6.6 million to $9.43 million annually. The number of grants awarded for FY 2011 will be contingent upon the quality of the applications and availability of funding. Applicants may apply for a ceiling amount up to $9.43 million annually. Funding beyond the first year is dependent on the availability of appropriated funds for the MIECHV program in subsequent fiscal years, grantee satisfactory performance, and a decision that continued funding is in the best interest of the federal government.
Development Grants are for states and jurisdictions that currently have modest home visiting programs and want to build on existing efforts. The intent is for states to use Development Grants as stepping stones towards becoming competitive in receiving an Expansion Grant in the future.
Approximately $33 million of the competitive FY 2011 funding will be awarded for 10-12, two-year grants. The total grant award may range between $2.75 million and $3.3 million annually. Applicants may apply for up to $3.3 million per year. For each cycle, funding beyond the first year is dependent on the availability of appropriated funds for the MIECHV program in subsequent fiscal years, grantee satisfactory performance, and a decision that continued funding is in the best interest of the federal government.
