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).
