HARC houses a diverse practice-based research network for conducting collaborative, field-initiated studies with local home visiting programs, regardless of the model used. Any local program that provides home visiting for expectant families and/or families of children birth to five years as its primary service strategy is welcome to join, as are directors of local networks and state networks, and researchers who have an interest in home visiting research.

The Home Visiting Applied Research Collaborative (HARC) is a national network under the direction of Anne Duggan, Sc.D., a Professor of Pediatrics at Johns Hopkins. It was established through a three-year grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). Funding for the grant is provided by the Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting program (MIECHV) under the Affordable Care Act.
