The Department of Health and Human Services has announced $40 million in grants for initiatives--many involving information technology--to identify and enroll children eligible for Medicaid or the Children's Health Insurance Program in 39 states.

Half of the funds will go to 10 states using technology to facilitate enrollment and renewal in the programs. Technologies include Web-based applications, enrollment or renewal, data matching across multiple information systems to verify citizenship or and other eligibility requirements, and mobile scanners and laptops for offsite enrollment.

The technology funds, ranging from $750,000 to $2.5 million, went to state health departments or another organization in California, Florida, Georgia, Maine, New Mexico, New York, North Dakota, South Carolina, South Dakota and Washington.
