Dr. Heather Weiss, Founder and Director of Harvard Family Research Project, was one of five witnesses to testify before the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Education and Labor at the June 11 hearing on House Resolution 243, Education Begins at Home Act" (EBAH). This bipartisan legislation would create a federal funding framework to help states develop, deliver, and evaluate home visitation as a core component of early childhood services.

Home visitation programs provide parenting education and support to families of young children. The EBAH bill would support home visitation services from birth until kindergarten for a variety of populations, including military families and families with limited English proficiency.
