A grant is available to a USA public or private organization to support state programs ensuring proper health care for mothers and children as well as facilitating their receipt of medical insurance through new health insurance programs. As such, the grantee will develop, implement, and maintain public health programs and provide outreach, enrollment and tracking of medical coverage.

Specifically, funding will be provided to support an organization focusing on MCH to improve public health programs and the delivery of MCH services and assure optimal alignment with the transformed Title V MCH Services Block Grant program. The awardee will support efforts of State Title V MCH programs, led by State MCH and Children with Special Health Care Needs (CSHCN) Directors, to improve the health of all mothers and children by assisting States in developing, implementing, and sustaining public health programs and a comprehensive system of care for the delivery of MCH services that are well aligned with the transformed Title V MCH Services Block Grant.

In addition, the awardee will support efforts of State Title V MCH Services Block Grant programs related to the implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), including outreach and enrollment, tracking improvements from coverage to care to systems, and developing an “early warning system” for ACA-related issues in MCH.

Applications for the Partnership for State Title V MCH Leadership Community Cooperative Agreement must address the following four goals:

1. Assist and support State MCH and CSHCN Directors in improving MCH outcomes. As part of this goal, the awardee will assist States in understanding the successes of other States addressing similar MCH challenges, which is critical to progress in optimizing the health and well-being of the MCH population.

2. Serve as an effective voice in communicating the importance of MCH issues. Mechanisms for accomplishing this goal may include:
- Articulating the needs of the MCH population and communicating the importance of MCH issues at national, State, and local levels.
- Disseminating new information about MCH to policy and decision makers in the public and private sectors at national, State, and local levels.
- Gathering information from State MCH and CSHCN Directors and their staff about MCH issues of concern, including emerging issues.
- Maintaining ongoing communication with all State MCH and CSHCN Directors to assist them in understanding emerging MCH issues and effective strategies for improving MCH outcomes.

3. Develop strong partnerships and collaborations with other national partners to advance MCH priorities. Mechanisms for accomplishing this goal may include:
- Assisting members in developing and sustaining strong partnerships and collaborations with staff from other programs to address MCH issues.
- Working with national partners to increase broad understanding of MCH issues.

4. Facilitate development of a highly skilled MCH workforce, including State MCH leaders and staff, family leaders, and youth leaders. Mechanisms for accomplishing this goal may include:
- Providing resources for improving the skills of State MCH and CSHCN leaders and staff.
- Providing resources for developing family and youth leaders.
- Facilitating the development of the MCH and CSHCN workforce through enrollment of new State MCH and CSHCN Directors, paired with experienced MCH and CSHCN Directors, in a mentoring program.
- Facilitating the development of the MCH and CSHCN workforce through developing and providing access to on-line tools or resources that support workforce development needs.
- Facilitating the development of family leaders, through a family leadership development program.
