The Connecting Kids to Coverage (CKC) HEALTHY KIDS American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) 2023 Outreach and Enrollment Cooperative Agreement program provides funding opportunities to reduce the number of children who are eligible for, but not enrolled in, Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), and to improve retention of eligible children who are enrolled in the programs.
This funding will support innovative outreach strategies aimed at:
These HEALTHY KIDS AI/AN 2023 Cooperative Agreements will support outreach strategies similar to those conducted in previous CKC grant cycles, such as activities designed to help families understand application procedures and health coverage opportunities in Medicaid and CHIP. All funded projects should incorporate both initial application and renewal assistance into their proposed activities. Based on past experiences of successful enrollment of AI/AN families, applications should also incorporate providing one-on-one assistance to families seeking to enroll their children in health coverage or linking families with groups or individuals in the community who are trained to provide such direct application assistance. As with previous rounds of cooperative agreements, recipients will be required to participate in key outreach initiatives coordinated by the CKC National Campaign (the NationalCampaign). The National Campaign, led by CMS, provides outreach training and support for recipients as well as other partners who are working to help enroll eligible children in Medicaid and CHIP.
