Special Infórmate December-January 2016-17 Issue

 

Dear Friends,

Since 2012, Infórmate, our monthly newsletter for Hispanic stakeholders, is providing you with information on ACF programs, funding opportunities, and employment opportunities. Through the newsletter, we keep you up-to-date with the initiatives and strategies we are developing to ensure that ACF is reaching out to, supporting and appropriately serving our Hispanic constituents.

The face of America is changing, and ACF is responding to this important demographic shift. Please check this special issue of Infórmate for an overview of our ongoing Outreach/Access, Funding and Diverse Workforce efforts to ensure an agency-wide response to the human and social services needs of the diverse Hispanic population.

For the past three years, I have been privileged to serve as Acting Assistant Secretary of the Administration for Children and Families (ACF.) During this time, I have strived to make good on ACF’s commitment to addressing issues affecting our diverse Hispanic-American community; and narrowing existing gaps in services and policy.

Together, we have engaged in a productive dialogue on how to improve the life of Hispanic-American children, families and communities. Together, we have worked to ensure Hispanic-American families, children and communities are more resilient, safe, healthy and economically secure. Thank you!

Felices Fiestas y Próspero Año Nuevo!

Mark Greenberg

Acting Assistant Secretary for Children and Families

ACF HISPANIC INITIATIVE: AN OVERVIEW

The face of America is changing!

Hispanics are the largest and youngest minority in the USA, as well as the second fastest growing. Latinos represent 18% of the U.S. total population, adding up to some 57 million. Over 65% of Hispanic Americans were born in the U.S. Approximately 22% have limited English proficiency. One out of every four children in the U.S. is Latino. Nearly 1/3 of Hispanic children live in poverty. Roughly one out of every four Hispanics has no health insurance.

How is ACF responding to this important demographic shift?

The Hispanic Initiative Work Group (HIWG) has developed and implemented a structured, measurable, outcome-driven work plan that cascades from the ACF Strategic Plan.

The ACF Hispanic Initiative’s primary goal is to develop a uniform response to the human and social service needs of the diverse Hispanic population. It strives to incorporate lessons learned and best practices into the agency’s culture to inform ACF’s Outreach/Access, Funding and Diverse Workforce efforts.

  • Policy: From the nearly three hundred thousand children accessing child care assistance through the Child Care and Development Fund, to the tens of thousands of unaccompanied children from Central America being served by our Office or Refugee Resettlement (ORR), ACF is supporting Hispanic children and families in myriad ways each day. As an example, approximately 38% of all children in Head Start programs are Latinos. We recently unveiled the most significant improvements Visit disclaimer page to the Head Start program since its beginnings back in 1965. ACF is also responding to unique circumstances affecting Hispanic families like the threat of the Zika virus.
  • Outreach & Communications: In 2012, we began publishing Infórmate, a monthly e-newsletter with information regarding grants, job vacancies and other issues of interest to the Hispanic community. Please also visit our Hispanic Outreach page. In 2013, we held the first National ACF Hispanic Roundtable at the White House. Senior leadership, including Regional Administrators, continue to make a concerted effort to meet with Hispanic leaders and organizations, in order to develop/strengthen key relationships and better understand issues affecting Latinos across the US. We have expanded English-to-Spanish translation services. This investment allows us to translate program guidance, policy statements, resource tools, press releases and other vital documents on an as-needed basis.

ACF is successfully conducting media outreach on a national level. One of ACF’s campaigns National Nutrition Awareness Month with Head Start generated a total of 20 million media impressions. Our Unaccompanied Children’s program generated coverage in mainstream and Hispanic media. The Head Start final rule generated coverage on La Opinion (the largest Spanish-language newspaper), and other national outlets.

We have strengthened our stakeholder relations with Hispanic organizations such as the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC), the National Council of La Raza (NCLR), the National Association of Hispanic Nurses (NAHN), and generated new partnerships with members of the National Hispanic Leadership Agenda, among others.

  • Funding & Access: ACF updated non-discriminatory language access language in all our Funding Opportunities Announcements (FOAs) and related material. Diversity of Membership of Peer Review Panels language has been included in all recruitment material for grant reviewers. The Hispanic Research Center has developed a Federal FOA Scan which identifies strategies addressing the increasing diversity in the US, and informing ACF programs about best practices for supporting more culturally responsive FOAs and for promoting more culturally and linguistically responsive applications.
  • Research: In 2011, ACF established a Hispanic Research Work Group to enhance the agency’s understanding of social contexts, service needs and service utilization among Hispanic communities in the USA. In 2013, ACF funded the Center for Research on Hispanic Children & Families Visit disclaimer page (Hispanic Research Center), which is generating research across three priority areas: poverty reduction and self-sufficiency, healthy marriage and responsible fatherhood, and early care and education. In 2013, ACF also awarded the first Human Services Research Partnership to the Inter American University to improve understanding of the most promising human services approaches to improve the quality of life in Puerto Rico.
  • Cultural Responsiveness: OPRE and the Hispanic Research Center Visit disclaimer page have developed resources, including data to better understand needs and experiences of Hispanic children and families in the U.S.,to support ACF offices and grantees in better serving diverse populations. Region II and the Office of Child Support Enforcement have volunteered to pilot the ACF Racial Equity Initiative, and are receiving intensive training on issues of racial equity and diversity with a goal of both strengthening our internal attention to racial issues as well as informing our external work and providing staff with tools to view their work through a racial equity lens. HIWG has an ongoing internal awareness campaign to promote a clear understanding among ACF staff of the Nation’s changing demographics and the importance of serving Hispanic/Latino communities in ACF programs.
  • Hispanic Hiring & Retention: ACF is committed to effectively delivering quality services to Hispanics by strengthening Latino representation among ACF staff. The ACF Strategic Plan has identified strategies and objectives to support a diverse workforce. ACF regularly disseminates information on job openings and opportunities to Hispanic stakeholders. In 2012, ACF established the Office of Diversity Management and Equal Employment Opportunity (ODME). In 2015, Acting Assistant Secretary Greenberg issued a statement highlighting ACF’s commitment to a diverse workforce and the need to address the gaps in Hispanic hiring. In 2015, ACF conducted its first focus group of Latino employees to get feedback and recommendations. ACF has taken additional actions to strengthen our Hispanic workforce: for example, providing more professional development and training opportunities; incorporating their suggestions to enhance our organizational culture and cultural competencies; and promoting an internal support system among Latino ACF employees. As a result, in 2015, ACF saw a 15.4 % increase Visit disclaimer page in Hispanic employee satisfaction and commitment.

There is still much to do, pero juntos, ¡podemos!

In 2017, look for:

  • Communications campaign highlighting data to better understand the needs and experiences of Hispanic children and families in the U.S.;
  • Dissemination of resource tools to strengthen organizational capacity of Hispanic-serving organizations; and
  • Webinars spotlighting the various HHS agencies and employment opportunities, among other activities.

We will continue to:

  • increase internal awareness of—and buy-in for—the Hispanic Initiative;
  • strengthen external outreach, increasing stakeholders’ awareness, knowledge, and participation in funding opportunities and grant reviews; and
  • develop and implement best practices to increase Hispanic hiring and retention at ACF.

Head Start funds more hours of service for programs across the country

The Department of Health and Human Services is awarding approximately $290 million to 665 Head Start and Early Head Start programs to expand the number of children-attended programs that offer full school day and full school year services.

Congress allocated these funds as a down payment toward ensuring that nearly all preschool-age children in Head Start attend programs that operate for a full day and full school year. This investment complements new Head Start standards announced earlier this year, which require nearly all Head Start programs to offer full school day and full school year services by 2021. While these funds will ensure that communities have some full day and year slots, sustained and increased investment is needed to ensure that all Head Start children have access to a full school day and year of services.

“Strong and mounting evidence from research tells us when children attend high quality programs for more days and longer hours, they are better prepared for school and have improved outcomes,” said Linda Smith, HHS deputy assistant secretary for early childhood development. “We are pleased Congress has appropriated these funds for young children served by the Head Start program.”

Research shows programs that run for fewer hours and fewer days may not have enough time to provide frequent intentional teaching in small groups and individualized instruction, or to provide necessary comprehensive services. Long summer breaks can also undermine the gains that children make during the program year.

This supplemental funding allows Head Start programs to choose the models that work best for their communities when designing programs with more total annual hours. Programs work with parents in deciding to add days at the end of the year, to shorten the summer gap, to add more hours per day or a combination of both.

“Increasing the duration of Head Start programs is the right direction to help children, and it’s also more responsive to the needs of working families” said Mark Greenberg, HHS acting assistant secretary for children and families. “The funding provided by Congress will help to take an important step forward in strengthening the Head Start program.”

The $290 million in ongoing operational funding will become part of the grantee's base funding subject to appropriations.

Affordable Care Act

8.8 million Americans have signed up for coverage through HealthCare.gov since Open Enrollment began on November 1st. This compares to about 8.6 million plan selections last year at this time, demonstrating Americans’ strong and growing demand for affordable, quality coverage. Total plan selections as of December 31st, which include auto reenrollments, consist of 2.2 million new consumers and 6.6 million returning consumers. Among returning consumers, two thirds, or 4.4 million, actively selected a plan, an increase from last year’s already high levels of consumer engagement.

“With 8.8 million Americans signed up for coverage through HealthCare.gov, more than last year at this time, it is clear that Americans want and need this vital coverage,” said U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia M. Burwell. “As we enter the New Year, Americans who are still uninsured should sign up by January 15th to have coverage starting February 1.”

Today’s report covers the period from December 18 through December 31, 2016. This snapshot does not include plan selections from the 12 State-Based Marketplaces that use their own enrollment platforms. Those numbers will be included in the upcoming Mid-Open Enrollment report.

As in past years, enrollment weeks are measured Sunday through Saturday. Since this year Open Enrollment began on a Tuesday, the totals reported in this snapshot reflect two fewer days than last year’s Week 9 snapshot, yet still enrollment exceeds last year’s total.

Every two weeks during Open Enrollment, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) will release enrollment snapshots for the HealthCare.gov platform, which is used by the Federally-facilitated Marketplaces and State Partnership Marketplaces, as well as some State-based Marketplaces. These snapshots provide point-in-time estimates of biweekly plan selections, call center activity, and visits to HealthCare.gov Visit disclaimer page or CuidadoDeSalud.gov Visit disclaimer page . The final number of plan selections associated with enrollment activity during a reporting period may change as plan modifications or cancellations occur, such as due to life changes like starting a new job or getting married. In addition, as in previous years, the biweekly snapshot does not report the number of consumers who have paid premiums to effectuate their enrollment.

Definitions and details on the data are included in the glossary.

 

HealthCare.gov State-by-State Snapshot

Consumers across the country continued to explore their health insurance options by reaching out to a call center representative at 1-800-318-2596, attending enrollment events in their local communities, or visiting HealthCare.gov Visit disclaimer page or CuidadoDeSalud.gov Visit disclaimer page . Individual plan selections for the states using the HealthCare.gov platform include:

HealthCare.gov Local Area Snapshot

The Week 9 snapshot includes a look at plan selection by top Designated Market Areas (DMAs) which are local media markets. This data provides another level of detail to better understand total plan selections within local communities. Some DMAs include one or more counties in a state that is not using the HealthCare.gov platform for 2017. Plan selections for those DMAs only include data for the portion of the DMA that is using the HealthCare.gov platform, so the amounts reported in the snapshot do not represent plan selections for the entire DMA. However, in cases where a DMA includes portions of multiple states but all of those states use the HealthCare.gov platform, the reported amounts reflect the whole DMA. Because not all DMAs are listed in the table, the amounts reported for local markets will not sum to the national total. Later in the Open Enrollment period we will be reporting enrollments for all DMAs.

Glossary

Plan Selections: The cumulative metric represents the total number of people who have submitted an application and selected a plan, net of any cancellations from a consumer or cancellations from an insurer that have occurred to date. The biweekly metric represents the net change in the number of non-cancelled plan sections over the two-week period covered by the report.

To have their coverage effectuated, consumers generally need to pay their first month’s health plan premium. This release does not report the number of effectuated enrollments.

New Consumers: A consumer is considered to be a new consumer if they did not have Marketplace coverage at the start of Open Enrollment on November 1st, 2016.

Renewing Consumers: A consumer is considered to be a renewing consumer if they had 2016 Marketplace coverage on November 1st, 2016 at the start of Open Enrollment and either actively selected the same plan or a new plan for 2017, were automatically re-enrolled into their plan, or were signed up for January 1 coverage through a suggested alternate plan.

Marketplace: Generally, references to the Health Insurance Marketplace in this report refer to 39 states that use the HealthCare.gov platform. The states using the HealthCare.gov platform are Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.

HealthCare.gov States: The 39 states with Marketplaces that use the HealthCare.gov platform for the 2017 benefit year, including those with Federally-facilitated Marketplaces, State Partnership Marketplaces, and State-based Marketplaces.

Consumers on Applications Submitted: This includes consumers who are requesting coverage on a completed and submitted application, including an application that is created through the automatic re-enrollment process, which occurs at the end of December, in a state that is using the HealthCare.gov platform. If determined eligible for Marketplace coverage, a new consumer still needs to pick a health plan (i.e., plan selection) and pay their premium to get covered (i.e., effectuated enrollment). Because families can submit a single application, this figure tallies the total number of people requesting coverage on a submitted application (rather than the total number of submitted applications).

Call Center Volume: The total number of calls received by the call center for the 39 states that use the HealthCare.gov platform over the course of the weeks covered by the snapshot or from the start of Open Enrollment. Calls with Spanish speaking representatives are not included.

Calls with Spanish Speaking Representative: The total number of calls received by the Federally-facilitated Marketplace call center where consumers chose to speak with a Spanish-speaking representative. These calls are not included within the Call Center Volume metric.

HealthCare.gov Visit disclaimer page or CuidadodeSalud.gov Visit disclaimer page Users: These user metrics total how many unique users viewed or interacted with HealthCare.gov Visit disclaimer page or CuidadodeSalud.gov Visit disclaimer page , respectively, over the course of a specific date range. For cumulative totals, a separate report is run for the entire Open Enrollment period to minimize users being counted more than once during that longer range of time and to provide a more accurate estimate of unique users. Depending on an individual’s browser settings and browsing habits, a visitor may be counted as a unique user more than once.

Window Shopping HealthCare.gov Users or CuidadoDeSalud.gov Users: These user metrics total how many unique users interacted with the window-shopping tool at HealthCare.gov or CuidadoDeSalud.gov, respectively, over the course of a specific date range. For cumulative totals, a separate report is run for the entire Open Enrollment period to minimize users being counted more than once during that longer range of time and to provide a more accurate estimate of unique users. Depending on an individual’s browser settings and browsing habits, a visitor may be counted as a unique user more than once. Users who window-shopped are also included in the total HealthCare.gov Visit disclaimer page or CuidadoDeSalud.gov Visit disclaimer page user total.


RESOURCES

Resources to Better Serve Diverse Populations

To support ACF offices and grantees in better serving diverse populations, the OPRE-funded National Research Center on Hispanic Children and Families has developed resources that build on and extend the information and principles discussed in two briefs released by OPRE/ACF in April 2014 (i.e., Enhancing Cultural Competence in Social Service Agencies and Survey Data to Unpack The Diversity of Hispanic Populations). The resources below aim to inform and promote more culturally-responsive services from ACF grantees and potential grant applicants, by presenting national statistics, guiding community agencies in using public data, and connecting agencies to additional resources to support their efforts to increase the responsiveness and effectiveness of services for underserved populations.
