As an adjunct to the Core Services Block Grant, MCH federal funding is used as a grant to support local health department staff providing MCH core service activities that are not reimbursable as patient care visits.  The funding will supplement salary support for an MCH Core assurance coordinator (MCH CAC) at each local health department to fulfill the existing core functions for the Prenatal, Pediatric, Child Fatality Review and Injury Prevention and Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention programs.

The MCH CAC coordinates health care services and links patients to community resources to assure optimal patient outcomes. The MCH CAC serves as a vital connection for public health, similar in nature to the role of a social worker in the health department.
