Health Equity

Integrated Refugee and Immigrant Services

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.

As an organization that provides intensive case management support to low-income non-refugee immigrants in New Haven, IRIS is a trusted messenger and connector to resources. Funding will focus on connecting children to expanded HUSKY benefits through IRIS’ Services for Undocumented Neighbors program. Outreach will include 1:1 work with families initiated by phone, text and email and resource days
