Health Equity

Connecticut Students for a Dream

2023 - $15,000

This organization is a recipient of the Trusted Messengers to Support Health Coverage grant and will share important information about health care coverage with their communities. The messaging activities are related to two major changes in health care coverage taking place this year: HUSKY redeterminations and new HUSKY coverage for children under age 13 regardless of immigration status.

The coalition will build upon their successful organizing to expand HUSKY benefits to inform families about the change in eligibility and assist families in signing up for benefits. Work will be in two parts: 1) community outreach led by coalition members, and 2) a digital campaign. Funding will support members who will canvas neighborhoods, organize community workshops and attend events.
