The R40 MCH Research Program supports applied and translational research relating to maternal and child health services including services for children with special health care needs, which show promise of substantial contribution to advancement of the current knowledge pool, and when used in States and communities should result in health and health services improvements. Findings from the research supported by the MCH Research Program are expected to have potential for application in health care delivery programs for mothers and children. Research proposals should address critical MCH questions such as public health systems and infrastructure, health disparities, quality of care, and promoting the health of MCH populations, which also support the goals of the Health Resources and Services Administration. The “life course perspective” is currently being integrated into MCHB’s strategic directions, and can serve as a helpful frame of reference for study proposals designed to address the critical MCH questions defined by the Bureau. Applicants are encouraged to propose translational research studies that specifically address issues related to MCHB investments and programs.  Addressing one of the four identified Strategic Research Issues (see Appendix A), is a review criterion worth up to 10 points in the overall score of an application.
