Nevada Covering Kids & Families Initiative

Grant Overview
The Nevada Covering Kids & Families State and Local Coalitions will be conducting collaborative and coordinated activities statewide to increase enrollment and retention in Nevada Check Up (Nevada's SCHIP Program) and Medicaid (Nevada's CHAP Program). The project will include conducting and coordinating extensive outreach and advocacy activities, simplification of the enrollment and renewal process and the coordination of existing health coverage programs. Nevada's program targets the entire state with two local projects. One covers the southern part of the state including Las Vegas. The second covers the northern urban cities of Reno, Sparks and Carson City and surrounding areas. Rural and frontier communities of the state will be covered through rural outreach and enrollment services in coordination with United Way of Northern Nevada.
