HRSA Maternal and Child Health Bureau

The Maternal and Child Health Block Grant to States is a public health program that reaches across economic lines to improve the health of all mothers and children. A partnership between HRSA and State maternal and health programs, State Title V programs use block grant funding to build capacity and systems, conduct public education and outreach, train providers and support services for children with special healthcare needs, newborn screening and genetic services, lead poisoning and injury prevention, and health and safety promotion in child care settings.
