Maternal and Child Health Discretionary Grants fund more than 900 projects through 88 programs each year. The Discretionary Grant Information System (DGIS) collects program and performance measure data that help assess the effectiveness of the programs and enable HRSA to monitor the projects. The grants, which address issues ranging from autism to emergency medical services to vision screening, help to ensure quality health care is available to the U.S. women, infants, children, adolescents, and their families, including fathers and children with special health care needs.
