Child Safety Learning Collaborative
The Health Resources and Services Administration’s (HRSA) Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB), in cooperation with the Children’s Safety Network, is launching the second cohort of a new Child Safety Learning Collaborative for state and jurisdiction Title V agencies.

The second cohort began in May 2020 and continues for 18 months to October 2021. We will begin soliciting for Cohort 3 in the summer of 2021, so stay tuned!
