What is the program?

This notice announces the opportunity to apply for funding under the FY 2022 Home Visiting Research and Development (HV R&D) Platform through the Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) Program.
The purpose of this program is to support a practice-based research network (PBRN) that engages in scientific collaboration and innovative research. Research conducted through this program should increase the evidence base for and strengthen the capacity of home visiting programs to measurably improve family health and well-being outcomes and improve equity in access to services and in family and community outcomes. The recipient will accomplish this through the following six objectives:
1) Develop and maintain a practice-based research network of home visiting and early childhood researchers, home visiting programs, home visiting model developers, MIECHV recipients, and other relevant stakeholders;
2) Advance the use of innovative research methods in home visiting, including methods that utilize rapid-cycle and iterative approaches that support the translation of research findings into actionable and meaningful policy and practice improvements;
3) Promote the use of data sharing and interoperability through data collaboratives and other partnerships to better answer questions of broad interest to the field;
4) Respond to emerging priorities in the field by conducting timely and relevant research, and translate these research findings into practice;
5) Mentor the next generation of early childhood researchers with explicit focus on increasing the diversity of researchers in the field, and;
6) Expand the field of precision home visiting1 through intellectual leadership, dissemination, and technical assistance, including by engaging a range of relevant stakeholders in formal and informal capacities.
