H.R.4768: Home Visiting to Reduce Maternal Mortality and Morbidity Act

Overview

Home Visiting to Reduce Maternal Mortality and Morbidity Act (H.R. 4768) would increase federal investment in the Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program (MIECHV) by $400 million. Under current law, federally-funded home visiting services reach only about 150,000 of the 18 million families that could benefit from home visiting. This bill would double access to these services.
