MIHOPE Study States






Mother and Infant Home Visiting Program

Evaluation (MIHOPE)

Informing the Future of Home Visiting



Back to MIHOPE Update

MIHOPE expects to include about 12 states, which are enrolling in the study on an on-going basis. MIHOPE field researchers have begun enrolling study participants in California, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Nevada, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Washington, and Wisconsin. Other states receiving MIECHV funds remain potential study locations.

All states receiving MIECHV funding are required to participate in MIHOPE, if invited.  However, the research team is seeking states that:

  • Are implementing at least two of the four home visiting program models selected by 10 or more states: Early Head Start, Healthy Families America, Nurse-Family Partnership, and Parents as Teachers
  • Have multiple local program sites operating in the state
  • Provide geographic diversity

Current and emerging MIHOPE study states

This map represents the MIECHV states HHS has approved for potential inclusion in the study as of January 2014. This should not be seen as a final list of states for the study. At this point no state has been eliminated from consideration for inclusion in MIHOPE.
