Georgetown University Center for Children and Families

The Georgetown University Center for Children and Families (GCCF) is an independent, nonpartisan policy, and research center connected to the McCourt School of Public Policy‘s Health Policy Institute. The organization provides research, develops strategies, and offers solutions to improve the health of America’s children and families, particularly those with low and moderate incomes. 

Alliance-Funded Support for State Advocacy

GCCF is the Alliance network expert on health-policy issues. The organization identifies, shares, and analyzes Medicaid/CHIP policy changes that may impact health services and supports for young children and their families.

The organization is supporting a cross-state learning community of state-based advocates digging into the specifics of Medicaid for young children; building new knowledge on state efforts to align and leverage Medicaid and Early Intervention (EI) to better serve young children and their families, in partnership with the National Center for Children in Poverty (NCCP); providing technical assistance to six state and national Alliance for Early Success allies on Medicaid; and keeping the Alliance network updated on federal or state Medicaid/CHIP policies and their potential impact by participating in our StateFedConnect work group.
