Update on MIECHV Program Deliverables

HRSA recognizes that this is a challenging time and the COVID-19 public health emergency is impacting home visiting service delivery in multiple ways, including the suspension of home visiting or alternative approaches to conducting home visits. HRSA acknowledges that even with the growing availability of virtual home visiting, many awardees and local programs will continue to experience major service delivery disruptions. MIECHV awardees may be concerned about the impact of these changes on their grant activities, including upcoming deadlines and deliverables. Below, HRSA addresses several upcoming requirements:

  • The deadline for submitting the FY 2020 MIECHV Non-Competing Continuation funding application has been extended from April 24 to May 29, 2020 at 11:59 pm ET.

  • The deadline for submitting the MIECHV Quarter 2 Performance Report has been extended 30 days from May 15 to June 15, 2020 at 11:59pm ET.

  • HRSA is aware that MIECHV awardees may be concerned about their ability to spend FY 2018 grant funds prior to their expiration at the end of FY 2020 (September 30, 2020) due to suspension or cancellation of grant activities. Because the deadline for the use of funds by eligible entities is a statutory deadline, HRSA does not have discretion to delay or waive it or allow for carryover of funds. HRSA will make every effort to minimize impacts on awardees that result from deobligated funds from FY 2018 awards.

  • The deadline for updating the MIECHV Statewide Needs Assessment Update by October 1, 2020 is also statutory; therefore, HRSA does not have discretion to delay or waive it. Additionally, because the award of Title V Maternal and Child Health Block Grant funds is conditioned by the MIECHV statute on submission of an updated MIECHV Statewide Needs Assessment, HRSA does not have discretion to delay or waive this requirement. HRSA is exploring all available flexibilities within the applicable legal requirements to ensure MIECHV awardees have sufficient time and resources to complete an updated, high-quality needs assessment. HRSA anticipates providing more information in the near future.

  • The deadline for reporting data demonstrating improvement in 4 of 6 benchmark areas by October 30, 2020 is also statutory; therefore, HRSA does not have discretion to delay or waive it. HRSA will continue to explore all available flexibilities within the applicable legal requirements to ensure awardees have sufficient time and resources to provide the required information to HRSA. HRSA anticipates providing more guidance in the near future.
