Jackie Walorski Maternal and Child Home Visiting Reauthorization Act
We are thrilled that the U.S. House of Representatives voted in favor to pass the Jackie Walorski Maternal and Child Home Visiting Reauthorization Act of 2022 (HR 8876) with overwhelming bipartisan support!
Our work is not done! We are excited about the momentum to advance HR8876 and the potential for this to be the first ever increase in funding for the MIECHV program. The bill will now move to the Senate, and we are hopeful that it will be included in an end of year legislative package.
It is clear that your voices were heard loud and clear in the House with the large bipartisan support H.R 8876 received. With our collective voice and through this one easy step, you can help support the first ever expanded funding for the MIECHV program by contacting your Senator!
