MA MIECHV needs assessment

A comprehensive understanding of the needs of families with young children across Massachusetts within the context of racial inequities.

The Massachusetts MIECHV Program conducted a comprehensive statewide needs assessment in 2020. The needs assessment 1) generated a comprehensive understanding of the needs of families with young children across Massachusetts, 2) assessed whether existing family support programs and services are sufficient to both meet families’ needs and effect change at a structural level, and 3) identified strategies to strengthen the state’s early childhood systems of care.

The Needs Assessment includes 18 Massachusetts MIECHV Community Profiles that summarize community-level data on indicators of maternal and child heath to empower stakeholders at the state and local level to better understand community needs and strengths and use a data-driven approach to address community needs through MIECHV funding.
