Family First Evidence-Based Practices Exploration and Cost Tool
This tool is designed to help jurisdictions select evidence-based programs or practices (EBPs) for their Family First prevention plan. Family First prevention plans are developed at the state and local level to guide the design and financing of home visiting and other programs and services which promote the health and well-being of young children and their families. This resource provides overviews of each EBP along with a survey tool. The survey tool can be used to match program fit and usability based on target population, program goals, evidence rating, program intensity and duration, program cost, staffing and training requirements, and other factors. Also included are worksheets for each EBP to help determine program cost based on the projected number of families and children to be served and the number of provider agencies, teams, and individual staff involved.
