Title V Maternal and Child Health Services Block Grant Program

The Division of Family Health in the New York State Department of Health leads the State's public health efforts to improve birth outcomes, promote healthy children, youth and families throughout the lifespan, and build healthy communities through community engagement, public-private partnerships, policy analysis, education and advocacy. The Division also oversees New York's Title V Maternal and Child Health Services Block Grant (MCHSBG) that is the only federal block grant specifically focused on improving the health and well-being of mothers, children, including children with special health care needs, and their families. One requirement of the Title V MCHSBG is to develop a needs assessment that includes input from individuals and families to help shape the plan for maternal and child health services.

The needs assessment is underway now to inform the next five years of family health programming in New York and we would like to hear what you have to say. Please choose between the surveys below—your ideas are a very important part of this process.
