Resources for Human Development

UPDATED: December 22, 2021

Resources for Human Development has partnered with MCHC (Maternal and Child Health Consortium) in the PA state-wide effort to enroll uninsured adults and children into Medical Assistance, CHIP Health Insurance and other public benefits such as LIHEAP, SNAP food stamps, Cash Assistance programs and more. The RHD CHIPRA Program is designed to support each applicant in applying for public benefits by offering a Family Benefits Advocate who will meet with the applicant within the home/community setting to identify supporting documents necessary for the application completion, act as a liaison with the County Assistance Office during the application process and follow up annually for application renewals. The Family Benefits Advocate will also reach out to families annually and remind them about renewal applications to promote continuity of benefits.
