The Hawai‘i Department of Health (DOH) has been awarded $3,510,137 in federal funding from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) to support the state’s Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) program.
The funds will provide voluntary, evidence-based home visiting services to women during pregnancy and to parents with young children.
“Home visiting services help to ensure our keiki and their families have a healthier start,” said Matthew Shim, DOH Family Health Services Division chief. “This federal funding will allow the state to continue to provide this important service to expecting mothers and families during a critical time in their child’s development.”
The MIECHV Program serves about 850 Hawai‘i families each year with more than 10,000 home visits conducted statewide annually. Families are screened for eligibility in birthing hospitals or families may contact MIECHV contracted providers online…
