How can family organizations maximize their meaningful involvement throughout the Block Grant process, both procedurally and substantively? How can they most effectively shape the components of the Block Grant, especially in this 5-year needs assessment year? Where are the “entry points” into the Block Grant development and implementation process?

This webinar will explore these questions and provide participants with strategies to:

  • Demonstrate their value-add to MCH state agencies
  • Engage a wide variety of family and youth perspectives in the Block Grant process
  • Have the greatest possible influence on the process, “from start to finish to starting again!”
