The states below have been awarded State Health Access Program (SHAP) grants by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) at Health and Human Services (HHS). SHAP grants are intended to help these states expand access to affordable health care coverage for specific uninsured populations, and are an outgrowth of the agency's State Planning Grant program that operated from 2000-2007. This program enabled many states to develop innovative plans that increased health insurance coverage for their uninsured residents.
The grants below have been awarded for one year, and may be extended to four additional years, based on the availability of funding.
