Maternal and Child Health (MCH) 

The Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Services Block Grant program provides federal grants to states to improve services for pregnant women, mothers, and their children. These funds facilitate access to health services, providing comprehensive prenatal and postnatal care, ensuring regular usage of available services, and established community-based systems of coordinated care. The MCH program also provides funding for eligibility and enrollment efforts for Medicaid and additional funding for family planning services.
