How Expanding School-Based Medicaid Can Support Youth Mental Health & Wellbeing

Grantmakers for Education and Partners


Schools and districts across the U.S. are contending with sunsetting COVID relief funds, rising costs and intensifying student need for mental and behavioral health, academic, and SEL supports. One solution is to tap into sustained federal funding for youth wellbeing by expanding Medicaid school-based services. Congress, the Department of Education, the Biden Administration and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services are aligned in their effort to expand school-based Medicaid—but states need to take several steps to make this happen.

Join Grantmakers for Education with partners Grantmakers for Thriving Youth, Grantmakers in Health and Youth Transition Funders Group for a funder-only discussion to learn how expanding school-based Medicaid can be a game changer for supporting youth wellbeing—and how funders can help catalyze action. Speakers include: Sarah Broome, Schmidt Innovation Fellow and Elizabeth Duncan, Louisiana Department of Education.
