Grantee: Children’s Alliance

Timeframe:   July 2017-June 2018   |   Amount:   $75,000

 

This project will build capacity in the Compact of Free Association (COFA) migrant community in the Puget Sound region to engage in advocacy for institutional changes necessary to increase access to health care and reduce health disparities. With funding from the PHPDA, Children’s Alliance will pursue two pathways for addressing the health access and outcome disparities faced by COFA migrants in the region.
1. Document health disparities and the need for access to health care, as well as community resiliency.
2. Build capacity for advocacy for institutional changes to ensure access to health care.
