$1,000,000 for home visiting this year, funding continues for another two years
We reported on two-year extensions of funding for community health centers and the Children’s Health Insurance Program, CHIP, when the House passed H.R. 2 on March 26. Also of note in the bill is another two year’s of funding for the Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program. The Northern Mariana Islands was awarded $1,000,000 for this important program on February 19. Funding will continue at that level through fiscal year 2017, if, when it returns to work on April 13, the Senate also approves H.R. 2.

(See, for instance, Effect of Home Visiting by Nurses on Maternal and Child Mortality.) The Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program is one part of President Obama’s

Representatives of U.S. “territories” are sometimes referred to as “non-voting” Delegates. That is not true of caucus voting, when leadership and committee heads are elected by every caucus member, whether they represent people living in a state or in a territory. “Non-voting” is also inaccurate when the Appropriations Committee canvases all Members of the House of Representatives each year for their views on which federal programs should be funded and at what funding level. Delegates’ votes count. And that vote is important for your representative to have, because each year the Commonwealth government and individuals and organizations in the Northern Mariana Islands receive millions of dollars appropriated by Congress. Last week, your congressional office wrapped up the work of making our recommendations to appropriators on 220 programs, important to the people of the NMI, for fiscal year 2016 funding. See the complete list here. We also submitted 15 recommendations for
