Demographic Summary

Federal Fiscal Year 2018-2019 (10/1/18—9/30/19)​

Early childhood home visiting pairs nurses or paraprofessionals with pregnant and newly parenting women. Trained home visitors provide support and education to families to promote positive parenting and improve child health and development. The California Home Visiting Program (CHVP) administers funds from the federal Maternal, Infant and Early Childhood Home Visiting grant. During the 2018-19 federal fiscal year, CHVP funded 23 local home visiting programs implementing one of two evidence-based home visiting models—Healthy Families America or Nurse-Family Partnership.
