Public Citizens for Children and Youth

Expanding Access for Kids by Leveraging Public Benefits Enrollment System

Project Type: 
Grant Type: 
DTA Foundation

“Public Citizens for Children and Youth (PCCY) has been organizing Give Kids A Smile Day in the Philadelphia region since 2004,” said Public Citizens for Children and Youth Child Health Director Colleen McCauley. “Part of our practice is to use Smile Day as a chance to enroll uninsured children in CHIP and Medicaid, and over the last three years we have accelerated our efforts to enroll as many kids as possible. The grant from the DTA Foundation means that we will be able to share our best practices with other dentists and non-profits across the country so that more kids can become insured and lead healthier lives.”
