Join us in urging Ohio legislators to prioritize young children in the state
The Ohio Senate Finance Committee recently heard public testimony on health and human service issues related to the state budget. bi3 partner Groundwork Ohio joined others in testifying to support:
- Increasing investment in Ohio’s Help Me Grow program, which provides home visiting services to families
- Extending postpartum coverage for Medicaid-eligible women from 60 days to 12 months after pregnancy
These issues are key to supporting young children, families, communities, and businesses.
Now, Groundwork Ohio is asking for your help to make sure infants, toddlers, and families are a priority in the state budget. They’ve created a simple way to message state legislators — all you have to do is enter your contact information and push send!
Do you or your organization want to get involved with advocacy, but aren’t sure where to start?
