MCH Needs Assessment

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services, specifically the Family Health Section in the Bureau of Community Health Promotion of the Division of Public Health, is responsible for carrying out the Title V Maternal & Child Health (MCH) Block Grant functions. As a recipient of the federal block grant,  Wisconsin is required to complete a statewide needs assessment every five years and develop a plan of action for addressing priorities identified during the process.

We Need Your Input!

Wisconsin's MCH Program is continuing to solicit input for its five-year Needs Assessment to identify new priorities for 2016-2020. We are actively collecting information, opinions, and perspectives from partners and consumers across the state that care about maternal, child, and family health in Wisconsin. The information collected will help guide strategies and activities for Wisconsin's MCH Program over the next five years. Please consider providing your valuable input by completing a brief Public Input Tool. (NOTE: Comments received are summarized and respondents are not identified.)


Wisconsin has five Regional Centers for Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs that can help families get answers, find services, and connect with community resources. Their services are free and private.
