Public Input 2015 State Plan - Request for Public Input
Each year the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services submits an application for federal Title V/Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Block Grant funds. This Block Grant awards nearly $4 million to Nebraska to address our state’s MCH priorities. Using our data to demonstrate improvements, we report on national performance measures and state performance measures.
The application process should involve individuals and organizations. We ask for your time and comments. We are currently putting together the 2015 plan and would value your input. Comments received by July 1, 2014 will be reviewed for inclusion in the 2015 annual state plan.
Consider these types of questions as you read the Overview
How do the state-level MCH/CSHCN priorities compare to the most important maternal and child health needs in your community?
What programs and services does my community have to help address these priorities?
What would improve maternal and child health in your community and our state?
What barriers or gaps could be overcome through better coordination of activities and programs?
How can the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services best promote maternal and child health?
What are the major disparities experienced by this population (or each of the MCH subpopulations) and how can these disparities be addressed?
Review last year’s narrative that includes the planned activities submitted last year which are currently underway. Consider these types of questions:
Are we on the right track?
What changes in strategies, if any, would you suggest?
Ideas, questions or comments?
