Cooperative agreements to USA private and public entities including Tribes and Tribal organizations and community-based and faith-based organizations to improve health outcomes for mothers throughout the country. Registrations may take up to one month to complete.

The purpose of this program is to support state capacity to improve maternal health and address maternal health disparities through quality services, a skilled workforce, enhanced data quality and capacity, and innovative programming that aims to reduce maternal mortality and severe maternal morbidity (SMM). The program addresses the high rates of these adverse maternal health outcomes by engaging public health professionals, providers, payers, and consumers to implement evidence-based interventions and policy changes that address critical gaps in and needs for services within the following categories:

  • Direct clinical care;
  • Workforce training;
  • Maternal health data enhancements; and,
  • Community engagement.

This program seeks to improve state capacity through a coordinated effort using public health approaches, direct service delivery, and maternal health data to support the implementation of innovative maternal health strategies. A primary program component is the creation of and support for a state-focused Maternal Health Task Force (MHTF). Each MHTF is expected to create and implement a maternal health strategic plan that incorporates activities outlined in the state’s most recent State Title V Needs Assessment, improves state-level data surveillance on maternal mortality and SMM, and implements innovative strategies targeted at the state’s leading causes of adverse maternal health outcomes.

Addressing maternal health data limitations is the secondary program component, and this funding opportunity will support improvements in the quality, validity, access to, and timeliness of maternal health data in order to enhance reporting and tracking of maternal health indicators within and outside of the clinical setting. These data enhancements will be used to support the identification and advancement of innovative maternal health strategies and to assess their impact on maternal health.

In 2022, this program seeks to build state capacity to improve the quality, validity, access to, and timeliness of maternal health data; identify the leading factors that contribute to maternal mortality and SMM; and, strengthen state-level efforts to implement innovative strategies through coordination and alignment with AIM. This funding opportunity will support 9 state-focused projects tasked with translating maternal health innovations and recommendations from ideas to action.

The goal of the State Maternal Health Innovation and Data Capacity Program is to improve maternal health in the United States by: catalyzing multidisciplinary collaboration; collecting and analyzing maternal health data, including process, structure and outcome data from the AIM program; and, promoting and executing innovation in maternal health service delivery to advance evidence-informed strategies that achieve a measurable impact.
