Supporting Families After Welfare Reform: Access to Medicaid, SCHIP and Food Stamps

The Foundation's program, Supporting Families After Welfare Reform: Access to Medicaid, SCHIP and Food Stamps, was designed to help states and large counties solve problems in eligibility processes that make it difficult for low-income families to access and retain Medicaid, the State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP), or Food Stamps, particularly families moving from welfare to work.The purpose of this project is to focus on administrative processes to diagnose and fix problems in Medicaid, SCHIP and food stamps eligibility and enrollment processes. This project will also leverage the window of opportunity that exists in the current political environment for providing coverage to children and families, while creating lasting changes in the eligibility system infrastructure.
