Illinois The Maternal and Child Health Federal-State Partnership


 
The Illinois Department of Human Services (IDHS) administers the Maternal and Child Health Services Block Grant. IDHS uses these funds to provide preventive and primary care services to women, infants, children and adolescents throughout the state. IDHS transfers 30% of the Block Grant funds to the University of Illinois at Chicago Division of Specialized Care for Children (DSCC) to operate the state's program for children with special health care needs. IDHS also transfers some Block Grant funds to the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) to administer population-based services for pregnant women, infants and children, including perinatal care, metabolic and hearing screening of newborns, oral health services, screening for lead poisoning and vision and hearing screening of older children.
