- Preventive and primary care services for children and youth; and
- Services for children with special health care needs.

What is the Title V Program?
The Title V Maternal and Child Health (MCH) program started in 1935 as a part of the Social Security Act. The Title V Program is the Nation’s oldest Federal-State partnership and in 1981 was converted to a Block Grant Program. The Ohio Department Health (ODH), Division of Family and Community Health Services (DFCHS) is charged with administering the Title V Maternal and Child Health Block Grant (MCHBG) Program in Ohio. For over 75 years, the Federal Title V MCH program has provided a foundation for ensuring the health of the Nation’s mothers, women, children and youth, including children and youth with special health care needs, and their families. Specifically, the Title V MCH program seeks to assure access to quality care, especially for low-income individuals or those with limited availability of care.
