Priorites for children and youth with special needs are available for review

Approximately 20 percent of the CCSHCN budget comes from the federal Maternal and Child Health block grant. CCSHCN is a sub-recipient of the grant, receiving funds through the Kentucky Department of Public Health to assure a system of care for children and youth with special health care needs in Kentucky.

For review, we’ve developed a four-page preview of the CCSHCN portion of the application for this year. Each of the four CCSHCN priorities – transitions, access to care, data capacity and adequate insurance – are condensed onto a single page in which we explore what the priority means, what action steps we are taking and how we will measure our progress.

Read about the priorities for children and youth with special health care needs.

These priorities were developed over a year-long needs assessment process involving family and stakeholder input. We encourage everyone to review this document and we welcome any comments, questions, or requests for more information.
