Title V Maternal & Child Heath Block Grant
At Work In Nebraska
Title V is at work within Nebraska communities and at the state-level through Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS).  Priorities from the statewide Needs Assessment are addressed using various strategies in the State Action Plan.  To the extent feasible, actions are backed with evidence that it will make a difference. 
 
Community & Tribal activities.
Forty-two percent of the 2015 Block Grant provides assistance to community-based organizations and American Indian Tribes in Nebraska to support evidence-based or evidence-informed strategies.  Subawards to private and non-profit entities currently include local health departments, Tribal governments, and non-profit organizations.  In addition to the federal portion, each of these organizations provide non-federal resources, or “match”, to broaden the support and to promote sustainability beyond the funding period.  More information about the current 16 projects are featured in a Synoposis, including links to each subrecipient website.
 
Many subaward opportunities are announced on the DHHS Grants and Contract Opportunities webpage, including any future Request for Applications of the anticipated 2017 Title V MCH Block Grant.  Subscribe to the page to be notified by email when there is an update.
