Press Release: National foundation awards Children's Alliance grant to help cover more kids

Feb. 23, 2011 – Today, the Children’s Alliance announces its receipt of a $120,000 grant from the David and Lucile Packard Foundation under the Foundation’s Insuring America’s Children: Getting to the Finish Line initiative.

This grant coincides with the two-year anniversary of the reauthorization of the federal Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) and will support the Children’s Alliance in its work to advance policies and best practices that can help cover Washington children.

Health coverage through Apple Health for Kids, our state’s Medicaid and CHIP program, allows children to get the preventive care they need to stay healthy and see a doctor when sick or injured. The benefits of these programs extend well beyond a child’s health, preserving parents’ economic stability and ensuring that schoolchildren can focus on learning – not on what’s ailing them.
