Targeted Portfolio: Expanding Coverage Funding Program Now Open
The goal of the Expanding Coverage Initiative is to reduce the uninsured rate in Missouri to less than 5 percent in 5 years. A new Request for Applications (RFA) invites organizations in the MFH region to apply for funds to assist eligible Missourians with enrolling in new health insurance coverage options and affordability programs made available through the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA). Visit the Expanding Coverage Through Consumer Assistance page for more details about the program and to download the Request for Proposals.

The project will include a series of policy briefs, recommendations for change, along with an overview of the current state of affairs.
