-- Minnesota - TakeAction Minnesota Education Fund

-- New Jersey - New Jersey Citizen Action Education Fund

Reform efforts in California, Colorado, Ohio and Washington will receive support from both RWJF and Packard.

"Effective consumer advocacy can increase the momentum in the states leading to action," said Susan T. Sherry, deputy director of Community Catalyst, who directs Consumer Voices for Coverage. "Creating networks that bring the views of real people to policy-makers and key thought leaders in the states about the need for coverage expansion can be a powerful inducement for reform."

"States are moving forward in addressing the pressing health care needs of children," said Cindy Mann, executive director of the Center for Children and Families. "States are learning from each other what works and which policy reforms are most efficient and effective at getting more kids covered. As they do so, state leaders and advocates are able to ensure best practices are adopted in additional states to improve coverage for children and families."
