IMPORTANT: IPUL is supported in part through the Title V MCH program in Idaho to provide needed training, information, and supports for families who have children with special health care needs. We would love your participation in the following. We will also be disseminating surveys in the coming weeks via in-person focus groups and online:
The Title V Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Block Grant Program is one of the largest federal block grant programs and the longest standing public health legislation with the goal of improving the health and well-being of mothers, infants, and children, including children and youth with special health care needs.
Whether you are a parent, government official, advocate, service provider, or member of the public, the Idaho MCH Block Grant likely touches you or a family member’s life. Its success lies in the strength of partnerships, collaborations, and involvement of Idaho families. The program collects input related to existing services and programs, population needs, and emerging issues to assure that the MCH Program is guided by the needs of Idaho. Each year, we invite the public to review and provide input on Idaho’s MCH Block Grant activities and strategies.

To provide feedback on this year’s MCH Block Grant Executive Summary, please send an email to IdahoMCH@dhw.idaho.gov. Comments received prior to July 15, 2019 will be considered for the FY 2020 grant application. However, the Idaho MCH Program welcomes comments and feedback year-round.
