2021 Prenatal-to-3 State Policy Roadmap Deep Dive Workshops
BEYOND ELIGIBILITY: HOW CAN STATES REDUCE BARRIERS TO ACCESSING BENEFITS?
Wednesday, October 20, 2021
11:30 am - 12:30 pm Central Time
In this series of related workshops, we will take deeper dives into specific policies, strategies, and timely issues impacting infants, toddlers, and their caregivers. Join us to learn more about the issues you are passionate about with some of the nation's top experts and scholars.
Benefits are not impactful if those who are eligible cannot access them.
Please join the Prenatal-to-3 Policy Impact Center for an important discussion on strengthening policies and increasing impact by reducing barriers to accessing benefits. Nationally recognized scholars Dr. Pamela Herd and Dr. Don Moynihan, authors of "Administrative Burden: Policymaking by Other Means," will share what administrative burden looks like and how policymakers can help to reduce them so those who are eligible can fully and more readily access their benefits.
REGISTER BELOW for Beyond eligibility: How can states reduce barriers to accessing benefits? on October 20, 2021 (11:30am-12:30pm CT). There is no fee to register.
