Two national think tanks released a report
this week about MIECHV, which funds early childhood home visiting programs in all 50 states, including South Carolina. MIECHV (Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting) is a federally-funded program that is both cost effective and has provided reliable results for South Carolina’s families. Unfortunately, it is at risk of ending this year unless Congress acts to renew it. We’ll be talking about this more going forward, but wanted to let you all know now about the report released by the CLASP and the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, available here: http://bit.ly/Ne5hS3
. Many thanks to them for their work on this important program.
