Time: 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM EDT

Advancing and implementing state legislation can elevate home visiting programs as proven strategies for achieving positive family and child outcomes such as improvements in maternal and infant health, and school readiness. Well thought out legislation provides a clear roadmap for building a data-driven  home visiting system that tracks and measures progress, allowing administrators and policymakers to make program adjustments as necessary. Finally, legislation can lay the groundwork for future funding by building a solid system for investment. This webinar will present perspectives from state policymakers, agency staff and advocates about how legislation will improve home visiting in their states, as well as lessons learned from successful advocacy efforts during the 2013 legislative session.
