Supporting State Innovations for Equitable Systems of Care for CYSHCN

Organization: National Academy for State Health Policy

Primary Contact: Heather Smith

Grant Amount: $350,000 for 18 months

Date Awarded:


Many states are just beginning the work of creating equitable systems of care for CYSHCN, often in challenging political climates. State leaders need strategies, models, and support for moving health equity initiatives forward. In a previous Foundation-funded project, NASHP identified several state strategies and policy levers that support health equity for CYSHCN. In this new grant, NASHP will host roundtable events and a national summit to foster cross-state sharing of successful strategies and provide states with support for adapting and implementing strategies.
