Introduction

What’s Inside?

The 2021 Home Visiting Yearbook includes data from organizations that implement home visiting models and from agencies in states, territories, and the District of Columbia (hereafter referred to as states) that have received funds through the federal Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) Program.

Information on home visiting supported by Tribal MIECHV reflects data provided by the Administration for Children and Families. The 2021 Yearbook also draws on public data sources such as the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey.

This year’s publication includes—

1 NHVRC National Profile
54 NHVRC State Profiles

State-specific information about home visiting services from evidence-based model data and potential beneficiaries from Census data

1 NHVRC Tribal Profile
55 MIECHV State Data Tables

State-specific information on MIECHV home visiting services from state MIECHV awardees, including a table containing aggregate data for Tribal MIECHV awardees

9 Maternal and Child Health Indicator Tables

State-specific information on family well-being and potential need for services, including information disaggregated by race and ethnicity to highlight the need for more equitable access to services for families

Home visiting presents an opportunity to improve complex systems that contribute to health inequities. For example, we are collaborating with MIECHV awardees and local agencies testing innovations to help home visiting systems be more equitable, responsive, and accountable to families, communities, and staff.
