Improving Maternal & Child Health

Access to Healthcare

Everyone deserves access to quality healthcare. Here’s how we help.

Addressing potential health issues in pregnancy or early infancy can prevent death and disability and allow children to reach their full potential in life.

The goal of the Maternal and Child Health initiative is to improve outcomes for moms, infants and families in the first year of life.

There are currently no funding opportunities available for Maternal and Child Health.

Convening Organizations for Healthy Beginnings Planning Grants

Pregnancy and the first year of life present a window of opportunity to help women, infants and families thrive. Healthy Beginnings Planning Grants will support community collaboratives to come together to create a plan to address breastfeeding, maternal mental health, access to prenatal care and/or safe sleep to improve outcomes in the first year of life.

Funds will support a convening organization to recruit and retain partners to engage in the planning process.

If you have questions about this funding opportunity, please contact Melissa Eggen, program officer, at meggen@obicihcf.org or 757-539-8810.
