Quotes

She wrote, "The [Affordable Care Act] required all states to make more than 70 system upgrades, which we integrated Healthy PA system changes into in order to most cost-efficiently address needed system changes."
Upon notification to the awardees, Pennsylvania Children's Trust Fund Board Chair Bruce R Clash said, "The Board members congratulate the successful applicants and are pleased to partner with them in the fight against child abuse and neglect in Pennsylvania . The grantees strongly demonstrated their ability to provide high-quality support services to families where circumstances exist that place children at greater risk of maltreatment. The various programs the grantees will utilize are shown to build knowledge of parenting and child development, improve parental social connections and access to support, as well as boost the social and emotional competence of their children."
"We have not viewed the premiums as a revenue-generating source," Fishlock wrote in the e-mail. "Personal responsibility is a key element to the Healthy Pennsylvania plan."
Sponsored by: "Project LAUNCH will help so many Pennsylvania families," DPW Secretary Beverly Mackereth said. "It will use early detection and early intervention techniques to prevent escalations and, in some cases, prevent the onset of mental health problems. We are honored to receive this grant and excited about the opportunities it will offer."
