Title V of the Social Security Act authorizes appropriations to states to improve the health of all mothers and children in the form of the Maternal and Child Health Block Grant. Each year, state health offices may apply for funds from the federal government, which are used to provide maternal and child health services to pregnant women, infants and children, particularly children with special health care needs. The MCH Block Grant application outlines the state’s needs and plans for addressing specific population domains, state priorities, and tracks performance measures and indicators to demonstrate need for services and progress towards improvement.
