Enhancing the Safety Net Through Data-Driven Policy is an intensive technical assistance project sponsored by the Health Resources and Services Administration as part of the Safety Net Monitoring Initiative. It is designed to help policymakers in three States develop a series of data-driven recommendations to enhance the strength and stability of their health care safety net(s).

As part of the project, interdisciplinary state teams will:

  • Demonstrate the practical application of the Safety Net Monitoring Initiative data and tools.
  • Use the data tools as the basis for crafting their own policy initiatives to strengthen and sustain the health care safety net.
  • Receive technical assistance to build on the innovative practices others have used to address similar challenges.

This project gives states the opportunity to learn about new data and current research from Federal officials and nationally recognized experts, as well as promising State practices from peers in other States.
