The Health and Nutrition Safety Net for California’s Children
The James Irvine Foundation Briefing Series
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.
