Summary

This bill would create a home visiting grant program to expand the number of children and families served by nationally recognized, evidence-based home visiting models throughout Colorado. Participation in these voluntary home visiting programs helps improve school readiness, build parenting skills and address challenges under-resourced families face.

Position

The Children’s Campaign supports this bill because two-generation, evidence-based strategies improve children’s well-being and support parents. We know that investments in support of families during a child’s earliest years is one of the best strategies the state can utilize to set our children up for future success

Current Status

Scheduled to be heard in the Senate Health and Human Services Committee on Thursday, Feb. 20 at 1:30pm in the Old Supreme Court Chambers.
