Title V Needs Assessment Resources
 

The Title V Program, administered by the Maternal and Child Health Bureau of the Social Security Act is a federal-state partnership that provides for programs to improve the health of all mothers and children, including children with special health care needs. The designated CSHCN program at DHCS is California Children’s Services (CCS). Every five years the Federal Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Maternal and Child Health Bureau requires that each State Maternal and Child Health (MCH) agency funded through the Federal Title V MCH Block Grant Program complete a needs assessment. The needs assessment in California is done in partnership with a contractor, Family Health Outcomes Project (FHOP), based at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). Through the needs assessment, the needs and capacity of the CCS program are determined, with active participation of stakeholders. Priorities for the CCS program, and for the larger children with special health care needs population, are determined, and an action plan is developed.
 
The list below includes relevant Title V Needs Assessment Resources that informed the CCS Redesign process.
