The Covering Kids & Families Access Initiative, funded under the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's Covering Kids & Families National Initiative, was designed to increase the number of eligible children and adults benefiting from public health care coverage programs. The initiative, managed by the Center for Health Care Strategies, Inc., awarded 19 grants to local pilot projects to identify and document barriers to the use of health care services for low-income children and adults enrolled in Medicaid and the State Children's Health Insurance Program1and to develop strategies to improve their access to health care services. This report highlights the successes and challenges of local community organizations working to improve access to health care services for low-income families.
