Title V Program Contacts.

Every state has a Title V Program which is funded, in part, through the Federal Title V Block Grant that provides health-related services to children with special healthcare needs--sometimes abbreviated as "CSHCN"--and their families. Title V Programs also provide assistance in accessing other services that CSHCN and their families need, such as parent support and information networks. The financial eligibility criteria, residency criteria, and medical eligibility criteria for these Programs varies from state to state. These Programs are also known by different names in different states. The following is a list of contacts in each of the state Title V CSHCN Programs. The listing is based on the Directory of State Title V CSHCN Programs: Eligibility and Scope of Services. This report was developed by the Institute for Child Health Policy in Gainesville, FL, with financial support from the Maternal and Child Health Bureau, (US Department of Health and Human Services) and with technical assistance from the Association of Maternal and Child Health Programs. The information contained in this report is also available through the Internet. The address on the World Wide Web is http://www.ichp.edu.
