Request a Grant Writer

Cooperative agreements to USA and territories agencies and nonprofit organizations to enhance home visiting services for families with young children. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take up to one month to finalize. The purpose of this program is to fund the development, implementation, and evaluation of innovations by Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) recipients that leverage new technology and/or data collection and sharing strategies to improve MIECHV service delivery, and extend the impact of MIECHV-funded voluntary early childhood home visiting services.

Such innovations must be consistent with the service delivery model(s) being implemented by the awardee. The MIECHV Innovation Awards aim to address HRSA and HHS goals of achieving health equity and advancing population health. Innovations may also respond to the evolving and long-term impact of the COVID-19 public health emergency, or foster a workforce capable of addressing current and emerging needs of communities that historically face structural racism and discrimination resulting in barriers to accessing resources they need to thrive.

HRSA-22-089: MIECHV Innovation Award - General Data/Technology Innovations (Track One), will fund the development, implementation, and evaluation of innovations that aim to leverage data- and technology-driven strategies to enhance home visiting service delivery. 

HRSA-22-102: American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARP), MIECHV Innovation Award - COVID-19-Related Data/Technology Innovations (Track Two), will fund the development, implementation, and evaluation of innovations that aim to leverage data and technology-driven strategies to enhance home visiting service delivery or virtual service delivery with specific reference to the impacts of the COVID-19 public health emergency.

These funding opportunities will support competitive awards to current MIECHV recipients to enhance service delivery through technology and data-driven innovations that improve home visits or virtual visits and to widely disseminate the results of these innovations.

HRSA has identified four program priority areas in which to implement technology and data-driven innovation and improvement. Innovations may also address additional priorities of the recipient that are not identified below as long as they also address at least one of the program priority areas and focus on leveraging new technology or data strategies. The four identified program priority areas include:

  1. Integrate administrative data measuring social and structural determinants of health into home visiting data to better assess existing disparities and measure progress toward achieving health equity; 
  2. Create or enhance early childhood integrated data systems through data interoperability, or other data sharing strategies;
  3. Develop data- and technology-driven recruitment and retention strategies, such as centralized intake, to identify and reach families who are historically unserved by home visiting or who face disproptionate barriers to accessing or participating in services;
  4. Advance professional and workforce development by identifying, introducing, and evaluating the use of new technologies.
