The purpose of this program is to support MCHB’s maternal health recipients, with a primary focus on the State Maternal Health Innovation (State MHI) program, to improve maternal health and to respond to the needs of populations impacted by maternal mortality and severe maternal morbidity (SMM). The MHTRC will also provide limited support to MCHB’s maternal health recipients with the implementation of maternal health projects, innovations, and initiatives in their respective states, where funds are available.
The goals of the MHTRC are to improve maternal health by:
- Providing tailored technical assistance (TA), capacity-building assistance (CBA), and evaluation support services to recipients of MCHB’s maternal health programs to aid awardees in addressing the needs of maternal health for populations disproportionately impacted by maternal mortality and severe maternal morbidity (SMM).
- Establishing a national resource center that provides evidence-based strategies and guidance to improve maternal health, reduce maternal mortality and SMM, and advance health equity at the individual, interpersonal, community, and societal levels.
The Program Objectives to be accomplished during the period of performance to support program goals, include:
- Support for MCHB’s Maternal Health Recipients
- The MHTRC will translate science into practice to support the State MHI awardees to implement effective strategies and innovations that positively impact maternal and child health populations, especially those experiencing the greatest disparities.
- The MHTRC will strengthen state- and community-based comprehensive systems of care for maternal health.
It estimates approximately $3,000,000 to be available annually to fund one recipient. You may apply for a ceiling amount of up to $3,000,000 annually (reflecting direct and indirect costs).
