Oregon Covering Kids & Families Initiative

Grant Overview
Oregon's Covering Kids & Families (CKF) initiative targets traditionally under-served populations, such as non-English speaking communities, homeless youth and families, individuals with literacy deficits, isolated rural adults and children and Native Americans. Statewide efforts utilize outreach and retention through traditional sources, such as the education and provider communities, but also places special emphasis on expanding relationships with the business community. Additional CKF strategies include: (1) expanding the location and focus on the recently launched toll-free Application Assistance Hotline; (2) working with the state to simplify and coordinate the application, enrollment and re-enrollment process; (3) facilitating the development of a coordinated application process for all state health programs; and (4) creating links that allow local groups to share and model successful CKF strategies with each other and the Statewide Coalition - Expanded Access Coalition (EAC).
