Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Block Grant

Public Input

Let Your Voice Be Heard!

Participate in improving the health of Wisconsin’s mothers, children and families by taking a few minutes to review information about the Maternal and Child Health Program and provide your ideas, comments and concerns.

Why Do We Need Your Input?

Every year, as part of the annual Title V MCH Block Grant Application, Wisconsin is required to solicit comments during its development and after its transmittal. This includes input received from key partners such as local public health departments, the MCH Advisory Committee and parents, especially parents of children and youth with special health care needs, as well as providing additional opportunities for anyone in the public to comment. We want to involve individuals like yourself by asking for your input and will carefully consider all input received as next year’s application is developed.

How Can You Help?

Please review the current application and submit ideas, comments and concerns.  Whether you want to comment specifically on the MCH Block Grant and related activities or you want to comment more generally on the needs of mothers, children and families, your interest and willingness to provide input is appreciated!
