Minnesota's Title V Maternal and Child Health Block Grant

Title V Maternal and Child Health Block Grant - The federal Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Block Grant (administered by the Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB), Health Resources and Services Administration, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services) is designed to help states ensure the health of all its mother and children, with a special focus on the most vulnerable populations - those that are hard-to-reach, low-income, children with special health care needs and/or racial and ethnic minority populations.

As part of Minnesota's Title V Block Grant activity requirements, the Minnesota Department of Health:

  1. reports annually to the MCHB on activities and expenditures supported through this grant, progress made on performance measures, and plans for the coming year.
  2. conducts a statewide needs assessment every five years. The needs assessment provides direction and guidance to Title V activities for the next five years by identifying state maternal and child health priority issues and performance measures that measure state progress and accountability.
