"The Mother and Infant Home Visiting Program Evaluation: Early Findings on the Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program--A Report to Congress" presents the first findings from the Mother and Infant Home Visiting Program Evaluation (MIHOPE), the legislatively mandated national evaluation of the Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting program (MIECHV or the Home Visiting Program). The report includes an analysis of the states' needs assessments, as well as baseline characteristics of families, staff, local programs, and models participating in the study. The information in this report provides a foundation for understanding the implementation and impacts of MIECHV-funded home visiting programs. Later reports will explore the local and national implementation of those programs, and their effects on families with young children. The study is being overseen by OPRE and conducted by MDRC in partnership with James Bell Associates, Johns Hopkins University, Mathematica Policy Research, the University of Georgia, and Columbia University. The study's design and plans for the content of the Report to Congress reflect advice from the Secretary's Advisory Committee on the Maternal, Infant and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program Evaluation. The following are appended: (1) Home Visiting Programs in Existence Before MIECHV, as Reported in the 2010 State Needs Assessments; (2) Programs in Use in Only One State Prior to MIECHV, as Reported in the 2010 State Needs Assessments; (3) Indicators of Community Risk in Communities Chosen for MIECHV Funding, Based on the 2010 State Needs Assessments; (4) Fiscal Year 2010 and 2011 State Plans for MIECHV Funding; and (5) Chapter 5 Supplement: Additional Information on the Home Visiting Implementation Policies of National Models and Local Programs.
