Affordable Care Act - Maternal, Infant and Early Childhood Home Visiting Formula Grant Program: This announcement solicits applications for the Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) formula grant program, established by the Affordable Care Act, to continue the delivery of early childhood home visiting program services. This program is being undertaken as part of the shared commitment of the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) and the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) to comprehensive family services, coordinated and comprehensive voluntary statewide home visiting programs,[[]1] and effective implementation of high-quality evidence-based practices. The MIECHV formula grant program is designed to: (1) strengthen and improve the programs and activities carried out under Title V of the Social Security Act; (2) improve coordination of services for at-risk communities; and (3) identify and provide comprehensive services to improve outcomes for families who reside in at-risk communities. The statute reserves the majority of funding for the delivery of services through use of one or more evidence-based home visiting service delivery models. In addition, it supports continued innovation by allowing up to 25 percent of funding to support service delivery through promising approaches that do not yet qualify as evidence-based models. Note: To ensure that the required statutory distribution is maintained, HRSA requires that all MIECHV programs demonstrate that they are being delivered in conformity with the approved service delivery models. This fidelity is demonstrated by programs that have the requisite designation and/or approval from a model developer to provide evidence-based home visiting services. MIECHV-funded programs must maintain the requisite designation and/or approval from the model developer while receiving MIECHV funding. [[]1] A "state home visiting program" is an overall effort, by the MIECHV grantee, to effectively implement home visiting models (or a single home visiting model) in the state's at-risk community(ies) to promote improvements in the benchmark and participant outcome areas as specified in the legislation.

Additional Information on Eligibility
Eligible applicants include States (excluding Florida, North Dakota, and Wyoming), Puerto Rico, Guam, the Virgin Islands, the Northern Mariana Islands, and American Samoa, as noted in Appendix C to this funding opportunity announcement. Florida, North Dakota, and Wyoming are not eligible for this funding opportunity; these States have opted not to participate in the MIECHV program. Accordingly, per Social Security Act, Title V, § 511(h)(2)(B) (42 U.S.C. § 711(h)(2)(B)), funds previously available to these States have been committed to nonprofit organization described in subsection (k)(1)(B) to conduct an early childhood home visitation program in the State. Depending on the availability of federal funds, Florida, North Dakota, and Wyoming may be eligible for funding in FY 2015. Nonprofit organizations providing services to Florida, North Dakota, and Wyoming are not eligible for this funding opportunity; these nonprofit organizations received grant funds under separate funding opportunity announcements to provide home visiting services in these States (see funding opportunity announcements for HRSA-12-163 or HRSA-13-255). These organizations will continue to receive the corresponding share of funds allocated to Florida, North Dakota, and Wyoming through federal FY 2014, subject to the availability of funds and grant performance.
