SD Gets More Than $1M For Home Visiting Program

South Dakota has been awarded more than $1 million to expand a federal program that provides home health care visits to improve maternal and child health.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services on Monday announced the funding for the Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program.

Under the program, health professionals, including nurses and social workers, meet with families in their homes to try to improve maternal health, child development, school readiness and economic self-sufficiency. The program also aims to prevent child abuse.

The South Dakota Department of Health will administer the grant.

South Dakota was one of 46 states to get funds in this round of grants.
