Program Monitoring

IDHS-DEC HV programs periodically undergo periodic reviews.

  • IDHS performs risk-based site visits to review administrative/financial operations. This review is administered by Regional Administrative staff and Community Support Services Consultants in the IDHS Division of Family & Community Services. IDHS-DEC HV programs receive an email from IDHS with available dates to conduct monitoring reviews. Once a date is mutually agreed upon, a confirmation letter and the monitoring tool are sent.  For more information about the IDHS Fiscal Administrative Review, see IDHS: DHS Provider Assistance.
  • A home visiting program quality assessment is conducted by Chapin Hall staff. Click here for the IDHS-DEC HV Quality Assessment Steps and more information can be found here.
  • Periodic Program Reports are reviewed and monitored for compliance on an on-going basis by IDHS Home Visiting Monitors.
