Initiated in 1984 as one of 10 regional networks covering the nation, the original Mountain States Genetics Network was federally funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Maternal and Child Health Bureau. Although Federal funding ended in 2001, the Network continued operations under the financial administration of the Mountain States Genetics Foundation. In 2004, The Mountain States Genetics Foundation was awarded a HRSA grant designed to support a national coordinating center through the Mountain States Genetics Network for regional genetic services and newborn screening collaboratives, including support for increasing the screening capacity of newborn screening programs to improve early identification of infants with hyperbilirubinemia. The new Mountain States Genetics Regional Collaborative Center now includes the original states of Arizona, Colorado, Montana, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming, plus the addition of Texas and Nevada.

The Texas Health Institute administrates the grant and coordinates the MSRGCC programs.

The MSRGCC prides itself as an open forum allowing all members - consumers and genetics professionals - the opportunity to participate as equals in addressing topical genetic services and issues.
