This grant will support reporting on how children with special health care needs and their families are being affected by the end of the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency in California, from challenges renewing Medi-Cal coverage to issues facing communities that speak languages other than English. The stories will reach a broad audience across the state, helping raise awareness of the challenges and inequities that persist for children with special health care needs, particularly as flexibilities adopted during the pandemic come to an end.
