Home Visiting Coordination Initiative (HVCI)
This project is supported by the Preschool Development Grant Birth through Five Initiative (PDGB5), Grant Number 90TP005901, from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families, Office of Child Care. Its contents are solely the responsibility of the authors and do not necessarily represent the official view of the United States Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families.
The Home Visiting Coordination Initiative, housed at Prevent Child Abuse New York, intends to facilitate program coordination and collaboration. Each region in NYS (see region map) hosted summits in 2019, locally facilitated and organized by backbone organizations (BBO's) to connect service providers and families within each community. This opportunity highlighted successes and barriers, culminating in 10 regional development plans and Statewide recommendations (2020 HVCI report). These recommendations and priority areas will be discussed at the next summit, November 19 & 20, 2020, to inform both local and statewide work throughout the grant period.
