Portico Awarded MDH Eliminating Health Disparities Grant
Portico Healthnet has been awarded a Minnesota Department of Health Eliminating Health Disparities Initiative (EHDI) Grant for the 2023-2027 grant period. Through this grant funded project, Portico will expand our work to enroll pregnant people and newborns in health insurance coverage at their earliest point of eligibility – interventions which target disparities in access to and enable utilization of high-quality prenatal, postnatal, and early life care. This work was co-developed with community partners who play a vital role in connecting pregnant people and newborns with Portico’s services, and we are grateful that we can further strengthen and expand the reach of these services throughout this project.
We are honored that the Minnesota Department of Health has selected Portico as a recipient, and we look forward to sharing more about the project as we progress.
