The Office of Planning, Research and Evaluation at the Administration for Children and Families at HHS has released Summary and Snapshot Reports of Benchmark Measures Selected by Home Visiting Grantees. These grantees are funded via the Maternal, Infant and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) Program. These reports outline the specific measures grantee’s have developed from six benchmark domains selected by HHS.
Description from OPRE:
The legislation which established the Maternal, Infant and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program requires that grantees demonstrate measurable improvement in at least four of six benchmark domains. HHS identified a list of constructs that grantees were required to measure within each benchmark domain and gave grantees the flexibility to develop their own performance measures for each construct. This flexibility allowed grantees to develop performance measures that were meaningful for their specific programs.
These two documents summarize the benchmark measures selected by grantees.
- The Summary of Benchmark Measures Selected by Grantees provides an overarching narrative summary of the measures that grantees have selected within each benchmark construct area.
- The Snapshot Reports of Benchmark Measures Selected by Grantees provides brief snapshot reports of how grantees are defining and measuring each benchmark construct.
