H.R.3117: Community Access, Resources, and Education for Families Act

Overview

The Community Access, Resources, and Education for Families Act (H.R. 3117) would establish a $15 million annual community health grant program for local Supplemental Nutrition Program agencies and clinics. These grants would be used to improving health outcomes by better connecting WIC to other community health providers, like advance practice nurses, OB/GYNS, and pediatricians. The grants could also be used to help to facilitate referrals between WIC and health care providers and improving the coordination, quality, and cost-effectiveness of health care services.
