MIECHV Reauthorization: Making the Most of Your Message


Sixth National Summit on Quality in Home Visiting Programs – November 15-16, 2016

Session Detail

As MIECHV Reauthorization approaches, communicating an effective message to federal legislators and ensuring support of the program becomes increasingly important. In this session, participants will learn from presenters who have advocated for MIECHV at both the state and federal levels about successful strategies for communicating the importance of supporting quality home visiting programs with federal legislators, primarily through the lens of a tour or site visit. Participants will have an opportunity to discuss additional strategies around planning and executing successful visits with legislators – and presenters will describe the key components of framing and communicating a clear and effective message to federal legislators in order to gain support for quality home visiting programs.
