The Home Visiting Evidence of Effectiveness study is a thorough and transparent review of the home visiting research literature and an assessment of the evidence of effectiveness for home visiting programs that serve families with pregnant women and children from birth to age 5.

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act established a Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program that provides $1.5 billion over five years to states to establish home visiting programs for at-risk pregnant women and children from birth to age 5.
