Grant Amount

$77,332 for 24 months

Date Awarded

October 2019

Purpose

Orange County recently transitioned children served by California Children’s Services to a managed care plan under the Whole Child Model program. The grantee has received previous funding from the foundation, and has successfully improved service delivery in the county by establishing better communication, coordination, and implementation of best practices among providers of service for CSHCN. This grant will provide support for identifying and addressing barriers to care that may arise as families attempt to access care. Products from this work will contribute to statewide discussions about the transition to managed care by sharing insights from the Orange County implementation.
