May 01, 2023

The Association of Maternal & Child Health Programs (AMCHP) continues to lead partners and collaborate with Congressional champions in support of federal maternal and child health programs through the annual federal appropriations process for the upcoming Fiscal Year 2024 (FY24). AMCHP has led on a series of letters addressed to the leadership of House and Senate Appropriations Committees demonstrating the broad, bipartisan support for funding the myriad federal programs to improve maternal and child health.

Letters supporting funding for federal maternal and child health programs in Fiscal Year 2024:

Letters supporting funding for the CDC Surveillance for Emerging Threats to Mothers and Babies (SET-NET) initiative in Fiscal Year 2024:

The President’s Budget Proposal for FY24, released earlier this year, requests $937 million for the Title V MCH Block Grant, a $114 million increase over the FY 2023 level. While we are encouraged by the President’s proposed increase, AMCHP continues to urge Congress to fund the Title V MCH Block Grant at $1 billion in FY24, including a more robust increase for the state formula funds than is currently included, in recognition of the significant role the Title V MCH Block Grant plays in the health and well-being of our nation’s women, children, and families.

AMCHP’s Government Affairs Team will continue to follow the FY24 appropriations process and provide additional updates. In the meantime, we encourage you to review the following resources for more information:
