Indiana Covering Kids & Families Initiative

Grant Overview
Covering Kids & Families of Indiana has identified six specific sets of "best practices" that will form the foundation of its outreach, simplification and coordination activities over the next four years. By applying these "lessons learned," the statewide coalition will expand and strengthen partnerships with (1) state and local enrollment agencies, (2) hospitals, health systems and managed care organizations, (3) FQHCs and other community health centers, (4) schools, (5) early childhood service organizations, and, (6) faith-based and other neighborhood and community referral organizations. Each of the six local projects have developed local work plans based upon their special needs to strengthen their partnership with these various organizations. At the statewide level, special emphasis will be placed upon developing "toolkits" that allow other communities throughout Indiana to adopt and more efficiently replicate these "best practices" statewide. This effort will depend heavily upon existing partnerships with FSSA, the Department of Education, the State Department of Health, the Indiana Hospital and Health Association and the Indiana Primary Health Care Association. Finally, the statewide coalition will formalize its governance structure and recruit additional statewide representation from faith-based organizations, businesses and other child advocacy groups.
