Title V State Block Grant Information

Maternal and Child Health (MCH) is part of the Social Security Act (SSA) of 1935. It is one of the largest federal block grant programs. SSA was the start of the federal government's individual state support. It aims to improve the health of mothers and children. In 1981, MCH became a block grant program. This resulted in many programs merging into one block grant. MCH has changed over time but maintains the focus on maternal and child health and well-being.
