WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman John Sarbanes (D-Md.) today joined the Maryland Congressional Delegation in announcing $2,987,679 in federal funding to strengthen maternal and child health care services throughout the state.

“If anything, the COVID-19 pandemic has brought long-standing disparities in maternal and child health care into sharper focus,” the lawmakers said. “We must ensure that at-risk populations have the high-quality care they need and deserve. Team Maryland remains committed to providing all Marylanders – regardless of their race, ethnicity, income or zip code – with affordable and accessible health care.”

Funding comes from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. It will help the Maryland Department of Health’s Maternal and Child Health Bureau expand access to high-quality care and specialized services for mothers and children.

The lawmakers previously announced more than $2.4 million to improve maternal and child health services across the state.
