This brief describes the procedures used in the Home Visiting Evidence of Effectiveness (HomVEE) project to determine which models to review. It provides hypothetical examples to illustrate the prioritization criteria and answers frequently asked questions about prioritization.

Each year, the HomVEE project identifies home visiting models to review. Decisions on the number of models to review depend on (1) the number of studies that are identified for review about each model and (2) the available project resources. The process by which models are selected for review is called the prioritization process.
