U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) - Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Bureau
Grants to USA and Territories state agencies for programs to improve and expand health care services for qualifying women and children. Applicants are advised to complete required registrations well in advance of the deadline. Funding is intended to improve health outcomes for at-risk and low-income women, infants, and children.
The purpose of the Title V MCH Services Block Grant program is to enable each state to: Assure mothers and children access to quality maternal and child health services, especially for those with low-incomes or limited availability of care; Reduce infant mortality; Provide access to prenatal, delivery, and postnatal care to women (especially low-income and at risk pregnant women); Increase the number of low-income children who receive regular health assessments and, follow-up diagnostic and treatment services; Provide access to preventive and primary care services for low income children as well as rehabilitative services for children with special health needs; Implement family-centered, community-based, systems of coordinated care for CSHCN; and Provide toll-free hotlines and assistance with applying for services to pregnant women with infants and children who are eligible for Title XIX (Medicaid).
The state may use its MCH Block Grant funds for the provision of health services and related activities (including planning, administration, education, and evaluation) consistent with its Application. In addition, the state may request supplemental funds from the MCHB to support identified technical assistance needs. Related to technical assistance, the state should plan for and allot funds for the MCH and CSHCN Directors to attend two required meetings each year in person. One of these meetings is the required MCH Block Grant Application/Annual Report review, which is held at a site designated annually by the Division of State and Community Health (DSCH) in HRSA’s MCHB. The other meeting is a MCH Federal-State Partnership Meeting, which aims to: 1) update State MCH and CSHCN Directors on relevant legislation and MCHB initiatives; 2) convene leaders, disseminate best practices and share innovations in the field of MCH; and 3) provide opportunities for information exchange, networking, and collaboration among states and with MCHB. States should plan for this meeting to be held in Washington, DC.
