AMCHP Leads Coalitions in Support of Funding for Federal Maternal Health Programs in FY 2025
May 20, 2024

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 (MCH) programs through the annual federal appropriations process for the upcoming Fiscal Year 2025 (FY25). AMCHP has led a series of letters addressed to the leadership of House and Senate Appropriations Committees demonstrating the broad, bipartisan support for funding a myriad of federal programs to improve MCH. Read the letters and view the signers below.

Letters supporting funding for federal MCH programs in FY25:

Letters supporting funding for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Surveillance for Emerging Threats to Mothers and Babies (SET-NET) initiative in FY25:

The President’s Budget Proposal for FY25, released earlier this year, requests $831,714,000 for the Title V MCH Block Grant, a $15.5 million increase over the FY23 final level. This increase is proposed for Special Projects of Regional and National Significance. 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 FY25, including a more robust increase for the state formula funds due to 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 FY25 appropriations process and provide additional updates. In the meantime, we encourage you to review the following resources for more information:
