Consumer Health Coalition

Grant Overview
The primary strategy builds upon the "inreach" concept in the 100% Pledge campaign focused initially on connections to free and reduced lunch applications. Interventions include creating one form that can be used by parents to apply for school lunch and for health coverage; creating protocols for handling and processing the applications within one County Assistance office; collaborating with PPC, the State Coalition, the state agencies and the school districts to assess the effectiveness of the effort. In year one there has been a field-tested combined application process for school lunch and health coverage, yielding an increase in insured children and a model for replication. In year two, the same pilot testing strategy will be applied to combining an application for subsidized child care with health coverage.
