FAQ: MIECHV Reauthorization

Resource April 7, 2022

The Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) program was reauthorized in 2018 at a funding level of $400 million a year through FY2022 and will expire September 30, 2022. This funding is mandatory and not subject to annual appropriations. After nearly a decade of level funding, the National Home Visiting Coalition, of which FFYF is a member, recommends a 5-year reauthorization that would increase funding by $200 million annually (reaching $1.4 billion in FY2027); doubling the MIECHV tribal set-aside from 3% to 6% to reach more families in American Indian and Alaska Native communities; and continuing to allow virtual home visiting implemented with model fidelity as a service delivery option for families who choose it.
