Under the new Health Care Reform Legislation, each state is required to submit by September 22, 2010 a Home Visiting Needs Assessment. The Virginia Home Visiting Consortium will be conducting hearings in various regions of the state to gather local comments on the needs. Government officials, community leaders, early childhood professionals, social service agency representatives, parents and home visiting program staffs are encouraged to attend. In addition to the sessions, there will be an on-line survey for gathering information on home visiting needs. This will be posted at www.homevisitingva.com .
