The Maternal Health Learning and Innovation Center is providing grants for organizations to strengthen their COVID-19 response by delivering or supporting the delivery of equitable maternal health support and services through telehealth. The goal of the program is to ensure that women at highest risk receive quality maternal care services before, during, and/or after pregnancy during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Funds can support access, development, or infrastructure, and funds may be used for telehealth policy support, clinical services, social support, and tele-behavioral health services related to preconception health, prenatal care and pregnancy monitoring, labor and delivery support, and postpartum care.

Target populations include:

  • Rural and frontier communities where access to reliable technology and the range of services is less readily available
  • Black/African American pregnant and postpartum people
  • Native American/Indigenous pregnant and postpartum people
  • Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander communities
  • Latina/Latinx pregnant and postpartum people, primarily in Spanish-speaking immigrant communities
  • Asian American and other communities with a high proportion of recent immigrants and refugees who are not English literate or fluent
  • Urban communities where there are severe maternity care deserts for Black/African American patients
  • Pregnant and postpartum people in Puerto Rico
  • People experiencing Intimate Partner Violence/domestic violence
  • People with substance use disorders
  • People with perinatal mental health disorders
  • Currently or recently incarcerated people

Eligible applicants include any domestic public or private entity, including tribes, tribal organizations, and faith-based/community-based organizations.
