In February 2007 the Packard Foundation launched its Insuring America’s Children strategy, a $15-million, multiyear investment in grant support, cross-program learning, training, and technical assistance to advocacy organizations in 16 states poised to make strong advances in children’s coverage. A key part of the grantmaking strategy is to provide policy and peer-to-peer technical assistance to state child health program administrators and policymakers in over 40 states and U.S. territories that are implementing new coverage initiatives for children. A comprehensive, multistate evaluation is also underway to monitor program progress, impacts, and implementation.
