I. Introduction/Definition 

The Bureau of Home Visiting administers community-based prevention and intervention programs to strengthen capacity of children, adolescents, women, and men to make healthy decisions, utilize support systems, access opportunities, and achieve self-sufficiency. Program definitions are as follows:

Family Health Technical Assistance - The Family Health Technical Assistance program provides model-specific training, coaching, technical assistance, and advanced professional learning opportunities to Illinois Department of Human Services Home Visiting Programs.

Illinois Department of Human Services Home Visiting (IDHS-HV) - The Department's home visiting programs include the Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) Program and the IDHS-Division of Early Childhood (DEC) Home Visiting Program. These programs (herein referred to as IDHS-HV) support pregnant people and parents with young children ages 0-5 who live in communities that face greater risks and barriers to achieving positive maternal and child health outcomes. Families choose to participate in home visiting programs, and partner with health, social service, and child development professionals to set and achieve goals that improve their health and well-being. Service providers use one of the following four evidence-based home visiting models: Early Head Start Home-Based (EHS), Healthy Families America (HFA), Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP), and Parents as Teachers (PAT).

Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program - American Rescue Plan Act (MIECHV ARPA) - The MIECHV ARPA program provides one-time funding made available under section 9101 of the American Rescue Plan Act (ARP), P.L. 117-2, to providers that currently receive Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) Program funding to address the needs of expectant parents and families with young children during the COVID-19 public health emergency. Funding must be used for the purposes set forth in the applicable law and may support a wide range of in-scope activities within the defined allowable categories.

Parents Care and Share - The mission of the Parents Care and Share program is to prevent child abuse and neglect through a statewide network of semi-self-help support groups for parents and caregivers of children. The Provider will maintain Parents Care and Share chapters across the state; recruit, train and maintain program volunteers; conduct outreach activities; and conduct other activities as negotiated with the Department.

Parents Too Soon - The Parents Too Soon program is the umbrella for two programs: Healthy Families Illinois and Parents as Teachers. The program provides support services to new and expectant parents with income less than or equal to 200% of the Federal Poverty Level through home visitation, parent support groups, and community education to assist them to develop effective parenting skills, improve the parent-child relationship, promote healthy growth and development for the child, and reduce the likelihood of child maltreatment. Through a third program, Educare, parents and their families receive developmental early care and education services with periodic home visits and center-based services. Funds are also used to support doula services of home visiting programs administered by IDHS as well as to pay for capacity to provide technical assistance to IDHS-administered programs.

Parents Too Soon - American Rescue Plan Act (PTS ARPA) - The PTSA ARPA program will use ARPA funds to advance COVID-19 response efforts by supporting home visiting activities that address immediate needs of parents, children, and families related to the COVID-19 public health emergency.

Pregnant Teens Doula - The program will provide Pregnant Teens Doula services at 3-4 locations throughout the state. The goal of services is to provide support to pregnant teens and young adults at a critical time in their lives. The three to four programs work in partnership with medical providers in local hospitals. Clinical consultants for this group of sites include a Registered Nurse, a Family Nurse Practitioner, a Certified Nurse Midwife, and an Advance Practice Nurse, among other credentials.

Prevent Child Abuse- The purpose and scope of services for this program are to support the development and effectiveness of new parent home visitation in Illinois by: participating in the IDHS-DEC HV planning and governance structure, planning and hosting the annual Statewide Conference on Child Abuse Prevention to include a home visitor sessions track and recognition program, sponsoring an annual IDHS-DEC HV Summit training event in conjunction with the annual Statewide Conference on Child Abuse Prevention, and providing technical assistance to IDHS-DEC HV program administrators and the DHS funded IDHS-DEC HV sites.

Responsible Parenting - The Responsible Parenting program helps adolescent mothers to delay subsequent pregnancies, consistently and effectively practice birth control, continue their schooling to high school graduation, develop parenting skills and cope with the social and emotional problems related to pregnancy and parenting, and to ensure that the teen and her child are healthy and prepared for school.

Note on Provider Audit Requirements

The Family Health Technical Assistance, MIECHV, MIECHV ARPA, Parents Care and Share, Parents Too Soon, Parents Too Soon ARPA, and Responsible Parenting programs use Federal funds, and the Provider may fall under the audit requirements of 2 CFR 200, Subpart F. This knowledge can be used to avoid unnecessary additional costs when requesting year-end fiscal audits. The Provider is therefore advised to notify their independent auditor (CPA) of this possibility.
