>From Laura’s suggestion, I would like to share with everyone information about Community Health Funding Report.
Community Health Funding Report is a twice-monthly publication providing analysis of health-related legislation and new foundation and federal grant opportunities.
In every 18-20 page issue, you’ll find timely grant listings including what funds are available, and the eligibility requirements. The grant opportunities are for a wide range of programs in areas such as infant and children’s health, mental health, substance abuse, nutrition, HIV/AIDS, homeless health, education and training, rural health, family planning, and others. It is important to locate new funding sources to be able to fill in the gaps of population that are underserved.
Here is a recent snapshot of an article from Community Health Funding Report.
The nation’s 44 million uninsured individuals are predominantly under the age of 65 because virtually all elderly have Medicare coverage, says the Kaiser Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured. They’re mainly low-income workers and families (74% are in families in which at least one person works full time).
The commission’s report, Uninsured in America: A Chart Book, indicates the number of uninsured increased in the 1990s by 1 million individuals per year due to decreased job-based coverage not fully offset by expanded Medicaid enrollment. Job-based coverage has since risen, but Medicaid enrollment has dropped, partly due to welfare reform and immigration policy, says the commission.
Nonelderly low-income adults have to meet stringent income eligibility standards to qualify for Medicaid and generally are not eligible if they’re single adults or childless couples. – End.
Health officials from across the nation find the information in Community Health Funding Report to be invaluable.
