Website Link

The Discretionary Grant Information System (DGIS) website displays financial and program data, performance measures, abstracts, and products and publications from more than 900 funded projects designed to ensure that high-quality health care is available to the maternal and child health population. The data helps the Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) assess the effectiveness of its programs and assists project officers in monitoring progress under the grants. The updated website includes improved functionality and data: a comprehensive search feature to view products and publications developed by MCHB grantees; data on new measures related to medical home, sustainability, and infrastructure; and data on the number of trainings and materials developed by grantees. A new social media widget is also available for users to add to their websites for quick access to the updated site.  The DGIS complements the Title V Information System, which electronically captures data from the annual Title V Block Grant applications and reports submitted by all 59 U.S. states, territories, and jurisdictions.
