Activities for Mothers & Children
The Richland County Health Department is actively involved in a variety of activities related to the health of women and children in our county. One of the main forces behind our activities is the Maternal Child Health (MCH) block grant that we receive. This is your tax dollars at work since the MCH grant is distributed to the states from the federal government as part of the Title V of the Social Security Act. Examples of activities that RCHD uses MCH block grant funding for include:
  • Informing and educating
  • Monitoring health status
  • Participating in child find activities with the schools in our county
  • Vision and hearing screenings in the schools
  • Child care health consultation
  • Immunization activities

For information on services available for children with special needs, visit the Montana Children's Special Health Services Program.
