San Felipe Pueblo, New Mexico (AP) April 2010

New Mexico’s San Felipe Pueblo has been awarded a $129,000 federal grant to increase the enrollment of American Indian children in health care programs.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services says the funds are aimed at improving enrollment of uninsured children who are eligible for state Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Programs.

Grants were available to health programs operated by the Indian Health Service, tribes and tribal organizations and to urban Indian organizations.

The grants are part of a broader effort to find and enroll eligible children in the programs.
