Each State Snapshot contains an overview of the Maternal and Child Health (MCH) program for each of the 59 States and jurisdictions that receive funding from the Title V Maternal and Child Health Services Block Grant, based on the data the State submitted in TVIS for the fiscal year 2008 annual report as well as other data sources, such as the U.S. Census and CDC.  Each snapshot presents basic information about the State, such as the MCH program description, population, number of lives birth, MCHB partnership funding, hotline data, and contact information for the MCH and Children with Special Health Care Needs directors. Additionally, breakdowns of the expenditures by population served, source of funds and category of service are shown as graphics. The 2008 results and 2013 goals for the national outcome and performance measures, as well as the State performance measures, are displayed. Finally, a list of 2008 MCHB discretionary grants awarded to both public and private organizations in the State are listed and link to those grants' abstracts, showing the extent of MCHB funding in helping to address the health issues of maternal and child health populations.
