The U.S. Conference of Mayors
2007 ADOPTED RESOLUTIONS
CHILDREN, HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES

ADEQUATELY FUND TITLE V AND POPULATION BASED SERVICES

WHEREAS, because of under and uninsured populations, the demand for maternal child health services has multiplied in recent years; and

WHEREAS, many cities maintain primary care physicians, nurses, dentists, and mental health providers to assist service many in the under and uninsured populations; and

WHEREAS, the constant reduction in Title V has resulted in the gap between needs and resources becoming increasingly critical; and

WHEREAS, the rising need for service and the lack of adequate providers and Title V funding cuts have greatly affected local governments' ability to adequate address health concerns,

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the U.S. Conference of Mayors sees as an absolute critical need the full and dedicated funding level for Title V funding.
