CMS to Award $49M to Increase CHIP, Medicaid Enrollment

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced more than $49 million to fund organizations to help eligible children, parents, and pregnant people get health coverage under Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).

Recipients include state and local governments, federal health safety net organizations, nonprofit organizations, and schools. Each awardee will receive up to $1.5 million for a three-year period to reduce the number of uninsured children by advancing Medicaid and CHIP enrollment and retention.

This opportunity leverages the Connecting Kids to Coverage program and the HEALTHY KIDS Act. Respectively, the programs aim to make health care more accessible and affordable and to reduce the number of children who are eligible for, but not enrolled in, Medicaid or CHIP. Funded organizations will provide enrollment and renewal assistance to children and their families, as well as pregnant people. Activities may include:

  • engaging schools and other programs serving young people;
  • bridging racial and demographic health coverage disparities by targeting communities with low coverage rates;
  • establishing and developing application assistance resources to provide high-quality, reliable enrollment and renewal services in local communities; and
  • using parent mentors and community health workers to assist families with enrolling in Medicaid and CHIP, retaining coverage, and addressing social determinants of health.

Grant applications are due March 28.
