This notice announces the opportunity to apply for funding under the State Maternal Health Innovation (State MHI) program. The purpose of the State MHI program is to reduce maternal mortality and severe maternal morbidity (SMM)3 by: • Improving access to care that is comprehensive, high-quality, appropriate, and on-going throughout the preconception, prenatal, labor and delivery, and postpartum periods; • Enhancing state maternal health surveillance and data capacity; and • Identifying and implementing innovative interventions to improve outcomes for populations disproportionately impacted by maternal mortality and SMM. The program objectives to be accomplished during the period of performance to support programs goals, are: • By September 29, 2025 (Project Year 1), each recipient will develop a draft 5-Year Maternal Health Strategic Plan (MHSP) to improve maternal health. • By September 29, 2025 (Year 1), award recipients will identify core measures to assess and report on program activities, including innovations, throughout the period of performance. This will take place in collaboration with HRSA. • By September 29, 2026 (Year 2), each recipient and their established MHTF will submit a final MHSP. • By September 29, 2029 (Year 5), each recipient will increase the number of community members from populations with the highest rates of maternal mortality and severe maternal morbidity that participate on the state's Maternal Health Task Force and in the implementation of the MHSP activities. • Recipients will release a public Maternal Health Annual Report each year of the period of performance about maternal health topics relevant to the state. • By September 29, 2029 (Year 5), identify and share the innovations with potential for replication, scale-up, and sustainability to improve maternal health.
