The team has also solicited input from multiple stakeholders, including model developers, MIECHV
awardees, and federal staff, as well as research and program experts in such areas as home visiting, child development, parenting, child maltreatment, and family economic self-sufficiency, and incorporated their helpful feedback into the study design.
Thank you again to everyone who provided input!
As the last MIHOPE
update mentioned, plans for the longer-term data collection will be described more fully in a design report, which will be released later this year.
Invitation to comment on plans for kindergarten data collection
Children of MIHOPE

kindergarten follow-up, which invites comments on the design and data collection activities, was posted today (January 30, 2018) and can be found here
. If you would like to comment on the kindergarten data collection, please follow the instructions in the Federal Register Notice.
