|Project: Supporting Families After Welfare Reform: Access to Medicaid, the Food Stamp Program (FSP), and the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP)
|Award Year: 2000
|Amount of award, fiscal 2000: $203,591.00
|Institution: Mathematica Policy Research
|Principal Investigator: LaDonna Pavetti
|Detailed Objective: This project is designed to help States and large counties solve problems in their
eligibility processes that make it difficult for low-income families to access
and retain program benefits. The project provides support for a Food Stamp Program
component in a study that addresses Medicaid and Temporary Assistance for Needy
Families (TANF). The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) study is part
of a broader endeavor, supported by the Robert J. Woods Foundation, that looks
at promising program practices for food stamps, Medicaid, and SCHIP. A second
"improving practices" stage of the broader research with the Robert J. Woods Foundation
will involve site visits to six States, four of which have been identified as
part of the foundation's activity, and two additional ones funded by ACF.
