Home Visiting



Florida receives nearly $11 million annually in federal funding to support home visiting programs in high-need communities.  Seventeen projects, covering 25 of 29 high-need Florida communities and four contiguous areas, were selected for funding through a competitive process.

Three proven models are used by communities based on local needs:

  • Nurse-Family Partnership,
  • Parents as Teachers,
  • and Healthy Families Florida.

Programs are implemented by local Healthy Start Coalitions, hospitals, federally-qualified health centers and other community-based organizations.
