Washington Child Development Council

Grant Overview
Washington Child Development Council will specifically focus on decreasing the number of uninsured children and the adults attached to them while identifying barriers or perceived barriers to health care access by utilizing three specific intervention components: engage and educate community agencies with whom they already have relationships who also touch potentially eligible children and families, increase awareness through the distribution of informational materials on available publicly-funded health care coverage programs as well as affordable private coverage (for those whose income exceed the limit for free coverage), and increase involvement with other early care and education service agencies and organizations to enhance outreach opportunities at the community-level within the District of Columbia. Because of the widespread nature of the work that is under the directive of this organization, they are in perfect position to interface and assist parents across the city, particularly those in immigrant communities where language, cultural, and other significant barriers still exist in navigating the enrollment and renewal processes.
