1. Ensure Funding for Ohio’s Children and Seniors
- If you work for a county with access to APS innovation grant funding, begin to formulate a plan for how these funds will be used.
- Start a conversation with your local legislators about what’s happening in your county.
- Stay involved! Watch for upcoming opportunities to protect children and seniors in the next state budget.
2. Advocate to Maintain Health Care Access in Ohio
- Share Heather’s Medicaid Story to spread the word about how health care access is supporting Ohioans across the state.
