The Title V/ Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Block Grant has been in existence for approximately 80 years and is funded by the Health Resources Services Administration (HRSA). which can be found at: http://mchb.hrsa.gov/. This Federal and State partnership provides a foundation for ensuring the health of children and youth (including children and youth with special health care needs - CYSHCN), women, mothers, and families.
Nevada’s Maternal and Child Health Title V program is dedicated to improving the health of families, with an emphasis on women, infants, and children, including children and youth with special health care needs (CYSHCN). Title V funding from the Health Resources Services Administration (HRSA) supports health education and prevention activities, increasing access to health care services, developing and leveraging key partnerships and collaborations, and planning and implementing program components that reach target populations. Efforts are done in collaboration with community-level partners (stakeholders, coalitions, sub-grantees/contractors, etc.).
Nevada's MCH program is responsible for working across diverse stakeholder groups, including people receiving services, to determine the needs of people in Nevada and then determine activities to be initiated in support of meeting those needs.
