Maternal & Child Health (MCH) - Title V State Block Grant Information

Texas Title V Maternal and Child Health Needs Assessment  

The Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) is conducting a statewide Needs Assessment for the Title V Maternal and Child Health Block Grant. Findings from the Needs Assessment will inform Maternal and Child Health programming for the next five years.

Surveys

One way that Texas DSHS is capturing feedback is through surveys. DSHS would like to hear from Texas residents about community and family health needs and experiences across Texas. A Community Survey and a Children with Special Health Care Needs (CSHCN) Survey are currently open through November 22, 2019.
