2018-2020 Title V CCS Needs Assessment

Title V-funded programs are required to complete a needs assessment every 5 years. The Family Health Outcomes Project at UCSF is facilitating the Needs Assessment Process on behalf of the California Department of Health Care Services, Children's Medical Services Branch. The goals were:

1) To determine action priorities to be addressed during FY that follow the Needs Assessment
2) To identify the most important and potentially effective changes CCS can make to improve services for CCS-eligible children.
