The UW LEND partners directly with the Washington State Department of Health – the Washington State Title V program. UW LEND trainees have opportunities for hands-on leadership activities with our Washington State Title V partners.
Title V is administered by the Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) as part of the Health Resources and Human Services Administration (HRSA) of the US Department of Health and Human Services. Title V programs and activities play a vital role in assisting MCHB to accomplish goals that include strengthening the national maternal and child health (MCH) infrastructure, ensuring the availability and use of medical homes, and building knowledge and human resources to ensure continued improvement in the health, safety, and well-being of the MCH population.
All US States are awarded MCHB Title V Block Grant funding. In Washington State this funding is awarded to the Washington State Department of Health. The specific purpose of the Title V Block Grants to the States is the creation of federal-State partnerships to develop core public health service systems that can meet the critical challenges facing maternal and child health. Learn more about the Title V Block Grant Program.
The following is a list of Title V funded programs based at CHDD. UW LEND trainees interested in leadership opportunities within these programs may contact the program coordinator.
