FL MIECHV is investing federal resources in evidence-based programs that support parents in their most important job — raising healthy and safe children who enter school ready to learn.
Our statewide initiative serves as a catalyst for early childhood systems development, and provides resources that contribute to capacity-building at the state and local level.
Allied with the state’s Healthy Start system, we aim to raise the bar on all services provided to expectant parents and their children age birth-5. We are working to help communities more effectively identify at-risk families, leverage funding and avoid duplication of services.
