About the Program

The Affordable Care Act has expanded opportunities to make enrollment in one safety net program a gateway to others. This integration can help California achieve a longstanding priority: increasing the participation of low-income children in health and nutrition programs. PPIC researcher Laurel Beck talks about recent trends in the use of safety net programs and factors that affect enrollment levels across California.

This research was supported with funding from the Blue Shield of California Foundation.
