Healthy Start Survey - November December 2000

Healthy Start grantees were surveyed during November and December 2000 to assess the effects of recent state policy changes including an overall budget cut, target population reductions, service expansions to include HUSKY outreach and funding delays. Surveys were conducted both by FAX and by phone. Of twenty-four grantees, twenty two responded to the survey.

Overall, reactions to the RFP process and funding cuts varied, even by the same individual at different times. Typical comments ranged from, "We will not back away from our commitment to this program" to "Why is the state doing this to us? Do they want to put us out of business?"
