The Maternal, Infant and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program, which provides training and support to families so that they can raise healthy children, would receive $400 million for fiscal 2018 under the budget proposal. The budget proposal is a welcome acknowledgement of home visiting’s importance, said Diedra Henry-Spires, the chief executive officer of the Dalton Daley Group, an advocacy group supporting children and families. But home-visiting supporters are continuing their work to a stable and larger funding stream. They are aiming for five years of funding, starting at $400 million and ending at $800 million.
