Infographic: Medicaid and CYSHCN

The Catalyst Center has created a one-page infographic illustrating important elements of Medicaid and children and youth with special health care needs (CYSHCN). This infographic is part of a series of infographics exploring key focus areas in the world of health care financing and coverage for CYSHCN. These one-pagers are a visually appealing and easy way to share information about the system of care for CYSHCN with stakeholders. Resources for further exploration about family  financial hardship  are listed at the bottom of the infographic.

New Grant Opportunity 

The Health Resources and Services Administration ( HRSA) has a grant opportunity posted for the Healthy Tomorrows Partnership for Children Program (HTPCP). HTPCP  is a cooperative agreement between the federal Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP).

Federal grants of up to $50,000 per year for up to five years are awarded through the program to support community-based child health projects. These project improve the health status of mothers, infants, children, and adolescents by increasing their access to health services.
 
Healthy Tomorrows projects must represent a new initiative within the community or an innovative component that builds upon existing community resources. Projects usually target marginalized populations and address four key areas: access to health care, community-based health care, preventive health care, and service coordination.
