The Foundation's program, Covering Kids and Families, was designed to increase the number of eligible children and adults who are benefiting from federal and state health care coverage programs.This grant provides continuation funding to the National Covering Kids & Families Network (NCKFN) for a period of six months to sustain the advances made in the expansion, simplification, coordination and enrollment of children and families in health coverage programs. The grant will allow the NCKFN to continue to support its membership base at a time when there will likely be considerable national attention paid to children and family coverage policies as Congress is expected to make decisions about the future of the State Children's Health Insurance Program and consider national health care reform.
