CHIP Health Services Initiative and Healthy Homes


By Kevin Chan

This issue brief provides policy makers and advocates a guide to using the CHIP Health Service Initiative (HSI) as a tool to leverage federal investment in healthy homes services. A recent publication by MACPAC1 shows that fewer than half of all states are using CHIP HSIs to fund childhood health programs. We believe that the HSI is an underutilized tool that states can harness to direct critical funds to programs such as lead poisoning primary prevention activities and asthma home visiting.
