Grants to USA non-profits, agencies, and others to assist those involved with urban health care for women and children improve their delivery of public health programs and services. A particular goal for this opportunity is to foster collaboration and sharing of knowledge between health departments so that together they can achieve more than either one could alone.
Specifically, the purpose of this cooperative agreement is to support urban Maternal and Child Health (MCH) leaders as they work to improve public health programs and the delivery of MCH services and to assure optimal alignment with the transformed Title V MCH Services Block Grant program.
Applications for the Partnership for Urban MCH Leadership Community Cooperative Agreement must address the following three goals:
1. Strengthen the knowledge, skills and abilities of MCH leaders in urban health departments related to achieving and evaluating collective impact1 through the following activities:
a. Conducting an environmental scan of MCH leaders in urban health departments to assess their knowledge of collective impact and the extent to which its implementation addresses urban MCH priority needs and to assess the existing inventory of tools for achieving collective impact in urban communities.
b. Planning and convening a series of three 12-month learning collaboratives for MCH leaders from 10 urban health departments per year which provide intensive training on the collective impact model and its application in improving urban MCH outcomes.
c. Developing and disseminating a collective impact toolkit and compendium focused on methods, tools, and promising/best practices to support broader implementation of collective impact initiatives for distribution to at least 150 MCH leaders in urban health departments.
2. Strengthen local and State MCH analytic capacity through epidemiology training opportunities.
3. Serve as an effective voice in communicating urban MCH issues and in developing strong partnerships and collaborations with State Title V programs and other national partners to advance urban MCH priorities.
The cooperative agreement recipient’s responsibilities shall include working with MCH leaders in urban health departments to strengthen their knowledge, skills and abilities related to achieving collective impact through the following:
* Conducting an environmental scan of MCH leaders in urban health departments to assess their knowledge of collective impact and the extent to which its implementation addresses urban MCH priority needs and to assess the existing inventory of tools for achieving collective impact in urban communities.
* Planning and convening a series of three 12-month learning collaboratives for MCH leaders from 10 urban health departments per year which provide intensive training on the collective impact model and its application to improving urban MCH outcomes.
* Developing and disseminating a collective impact toolkit and compendium focused on methods, tools, and promising/best practices to support broader implementation of collective impact initiatives for distribution to at least 150 MCH leaders in urban health departments.

* Serving as an effective voice in communicating the importance of urban MCH issues at the National, State and local level.
* Developing strong partnerships and collaborations with State Title V programs and other national partners to advance urban MCH priorities.
* Reaching out to communities where collective impact work is needed the most – including communities of color characterized by the greatest needs and greatest disparities across multiple sectors; that is, prioritize communities where collective impact work is the hardest, not the easiest.
* Supporting closer linkages between local MCH and State Title V MCH programs and other HRSA and non-HRSA investments, including, but not limited to, the MIECHV program, Healthy Start, Community Health Centers, and WIC.
