Title V Snapshots of the States and Jurisdictions
In 1935, Congress enacted Title V of the Social Security Act, which authorized the Maternal and Child Health Services Programs (MCH). Today, Title V is administered by the Maternal and Child Health Bureau as part of the Health Resources and Services Administration, Public Health Service, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Under Title V of the Social Security Act, the MCH Services Block Grant program has three components: formula block grants to 59 States and territories, Special Projects of Regional and National Significance (SPRANS), and Community Integrated Service Systems (CISS) grants. The purpose of the block grants to the States is to create Federal/State partnerships to develop service systems in our Nation's communities to meet critical challenges in maternal and child health. This document is the Appendix A of the report entitled "Title V: A Snapshot of Maternal and Child Health 2000," which provides a comprehensive picture of how the Title V Federal-State partnership works and what is happening in each of the 59 States and jurisdictions. The Appendix provides detailed data for all U.S. States and jurisdictions, including Title V Federal-State Block Grant expenditures.
