New Mexico Center on Law and Poverty 05/31/2018

Con Alma Health Foundation awarded the New Mexico Center on Law and Poverty a multi-year grant (three year grant ending in 2017) for the New Mexico Healthcare Access Project, ensuring that low-income individuals have access by removing barriers to enrolling, accessing or renewing Medicaid or Exchange coverage; addressing coverage gaps in healthcare; and promoting healthcare coverage and services for low-income Native American children and families.

Con Alma partnered with the Sancre Productions team to create four short videos that illustrate how our grants improve the lives of people living in New Mexico. These compelling videos show how four nonprofits used our multi-year grants (three year grants ending in 2017) to help people access health care, protect the confidentiality of adolescent health care and support community health workers to help those in need.

Be sure to check out the other three videos Sancre Productions created of our multi-year grantees; the New Mexico Alliance for School-Based Health Care, New Mexico Community Health Worker Association, and Vision for Dignity, Access, and Accountability (VIDA) in Healthcare: https://conalma.org/multi-year-grantee-videos/

The Affordable Care Act includes provisions that focus on improving quality of care for racial and ethnic minorities. In New Mexico about 70 percent of children are of color, and almost a third of children live in poverty. Interactive maps are available that detail seven categories of children’s insurance coverage by county. These maps are a useful tool for anyone interested in learning more about the insurance coverage of New Mexico’s children by such categories as race, place, gender and income.
