Alabama receives $6.6 million grant to support early childhood learning program

Home Visitation
Pregnant women and families — particularly those considered at-risk — in the Yellowhammer State will continue to reap the benefits of a federal program that provides necessary resources and skills to raise children who are physically, socially, and emotionally healthy and ready to learn, thanks to a newly awarded grant.
The State of Alabama was awarded a $6,593,481 federal grant this month to continue to provide voluntary, evidence-based Home Visiting services through the Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) program.
The MIECHV program funds scheduled visits by nurses and other health workers to help at-risk new parents and families with health, education, and parenting problems.  The visits have been tied to improved academic outcomes for children, better economic opportunities for families, as well as a decline in child abuse.

Ahrough its First Teacher Home Visiting program, the Alabama Department of Early Childhood Education allocates MIECHV funding to eligible Home Visiting programs that provide support to parents with young children up to kindergarten entry.

Currently, MIECHV supports Home Visiting services for more than 1,500 families in 43 counties across the state. These families are enrolled in one of three early learning Home Visiting programs, Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters (HIPPY), Parents as Teachers or Nurse Family Partnership.

“Home Visiting programs have played an essential role in helping families across the state learn how to be more engaged in their child’s life during their child’s critical early years,” said Jeana Ross, the secretary of the Alabama Department of Early Childhood Education. “This grant will help ensure that more Alabama families will be able to receive developmentally appropriate resources and support in their own homes to help them provide more early learning opportunities for their children.”
