The HomVEE project recently published new briefs that highlight findings from a research literature review on home visiting models in tribal communities. These briefs summarize key takeaways on developing, adapting, implementing, and evaluating home visiting models delivered in tribal communities. The HomVEE project also recently published a detailed fact sheet and brief on how the project systematically reviews the research on home visiting models that serve pregnant women and children from birth through age 5, including how models are selected for review.

Established in 2009, the HomVEE project determines which models have enough rigorous evidence to be considered evidence-based according to criteria defined by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The department funds the review and its Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation oversees it in collaboration with its Maternal and Child Health Bureau.
