The Title V Block Grant has provided a foundation for ensuring the health of women and children. Title V is the longest standing public health legislation. Title V Block Grants have been integrated into local, state, and national systems of care.
Title V has been amended over the years but the goal still remains the same.
Title V Today is Leadership, Performance, and Accountability. Title V remains the only Federal program that focuses solely on improving the health of all mothers and children.
Title V is a partnership with State Maternal and Child Health (MCH) and Children with Special Health Care Needs (CSHCN) programs, reaching across economic lines to support such core public health functions as resource development, capacity and systems building, population-based functions such as public information and education, knowledge development, outreach and program linkage, technical assistance to communities, and provider training.
Title V makes a special effort to build community capacity to deliver such enabling services as:

A new cadre of trained pediatric emergency specialists, more emergency equipment suited to the special needs of children are available, and protocols to ensure that more young lives can be saved in emergency situations are in place.
Today many historical legacies of Title V survive as key components of local and State systems of care.
