Arkansas Awarded $7,784,751 Grant

ADH

The Health Resources and Services Administration recently announced $7,784,751 in funding to Arkansas through the Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program. These grant funds allow the Arkansas Department of Health to continue to provide home visiting services to women during pregnancy and to parents with young children up to kindergarten entry.

Administered by HRSA in close partnership with the Administration for Children and Families, the MIECHV Program supports pregnant women and families, particularly those considered at-risk, as they raise children who are physically, socially and emotionally healthy and ready to succeed.

“Home visiting can be a real game-changer,” said Bradley Planey, Family Health Branch Chief and Home Visiting Project Director at ADH. “The programs work to improve children’s health, development, and school readiness. They also support families with health screenings, referrals to resources, parenting advice, and guidance in many other areas of family life. This can mean a big difference in the life of the child and family.”    MORE
