Specifically, the MIECHV legislation requires that State and Tribal MIECHV grantees collect performance data to measure improvements for eligible families in six specified areas (referred to as ‘‘benchmark areas’’) that encompass the major goals for the program. These include: 1. Improved maternal and newborn health; 2. Prevention of child injuries, child abuse, neglect, or maltreatment, and reduction in emergency department visits; 3. Improvement in school readiness and achievement; 4. Reduction in crime or domestic violence; 5. Improvement in family economic self-sufficiency; and 6.

    The ACF, Office of Child Care, in collaboration with the Health 
Resources and Services Administration, Maternal and Child Health
