2018 - 2020 Title V Needs Assessment

Title V of the Social Security Act provides for programs to improve the health of all mothers and children, including children with special health care needs (CSHCN). Implementation of Title V programs is a federal-state partnership and is administered by the Federal Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Bureau, Health Resources and Services Administration. In California, the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) administers California Children's Services as a CSHCN program. DHCS collaborates with the California Department of Public Health, Maternal, Child and Adolescent Health Division, the state MCH lead agency, on CSHCN issues.
As a condition of the Title V MCH Block Grant Program, the Federal MCH Bureau requires each state MCH agency to complete a needs assessment every five years. DHCS has partnered with the University of California, San Francisco Family Health Outcomes Project (FHOP) to conduct the Title V Needs Assessment. Informational and meeting materials will be available throughout the process at the FHOP Website.
