HCR 226 and SR 113 of the 2009 Regular Session created the Home Visiting Advisory Council, whose charge was to develop a plan to utilize potential federal funding for home visiting programs in the state. The resolutions requested that the plan be submitted to the House and Senate Health and Welfare Committees. The resolutions asked that the plan outline existing home visiting programs in the state, evaluate the effectiveness of existing programs, identify the gaps in home visitation in the state, identify the infrastructure, training, and technical assistance that will be needed to achieve and support the evidence-based home visiting program system, and recommend how the state can be prepared to respond to potential federal funding opportunities.
