Investments in Evidence-Based Home VisitingNebraska map of Nebraska Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting programs

N-MIECHV works to support and strengthen communities

In Nebraska, our evidence-based home visiting programs are community-owned and community-driven. N-MIECHV has very strategically made investments in our project communities across the state in planning, professional development, community collaboration and implementing local home visiting programs.  No one knows the families and what their needs are better than the people who live, work and go to school there.

Sources of investments

State of Nebraska investments: The Nebraska State Legislature has allocated resources to support home visiting since 2008. Our legislators know that by investing early in children and families, we can positively affect the workforce and overall health and well-being of Nebraskans in the future. N-MIECHV continues to gather the data to prove that the investment is well-spent through demonstrating positive outcomes. 

Federal investments: In 2010, the federal government, as part of the Affordable Care Act, reached out to each state and US territory interested in federal funds for evidence-based home visiting, to conduct a Needs Assessment evaluating six lifespan determinants of health: Maternal and Newborn Health; Child Maltreatment, Child Injury and Emergency Room visits; School Readiness and Achievement; Domestic Violence; Family Economic Self-Sufficiency; and Coordination of Referrals and Resources. N-MIECHV conducted the State​wide Needs Assessment and identified 17 “Priority" counties (Home Visiting- Level 1 County Results): Box Butte, Boyd, Buffalo, Colfax, Dakota, Dawson, Douglas, Gage, Hall, Jefferson, Lancaster, Lincoln, Morrill, Nemaha, Richardson, Scotts Bluff and Thurston. Those counties are identified on our map in the shaded areas.
