State Planning Grant Management

The Office of Community and Rural Health managed the State Planning Grant. In September of 2003, the Nebraska Department of Health & Human Services applied for and received this grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. A twenty-eight member Coalition, appointed by the Governor, developed the coverage options. The purpose of the grant was to:
  • Measure the number of uninsured in the state
  • Identify the characteristics of those without insurance coverage
  • Develop coverage options to reduce the number of uninsured
  • Strengthen the health care safety net

In the fall of 2005, the Department of Health & Human Services applied for and received a second State Planning Grant. The purpose of the grant was to focus on the small employer market. Its goal was to determine the types of insurance policies that would be acceptable to both small employers and the employees who work for small employers and the amount they would be willing to pay for these policies.
