    This brief revises our earlier analysis on who could be affected by Kentucky’s Medicaid work requirements based on new information posted on Kentucky’s website. We no longer include non-SSI dual Medicare and Medicaid enrollees in our main analysis and have revised all estimates in the text, tables, and appendix accordingly. We also discuss the waiver notices and information being conveyed to Kentucky’s enrollees and update information on the other states that have received approval to implement work requirements in their Medicaid programs.

    The Homeless Families Research Briefs project, conducted by Abt Associates, is producing a series of research briefs on issues related to the well-being and economic self-sufficiency of families and children experiencing homelessness. Using data collected from the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Family Options Study, these briefs build on the data and analysis already being conducted for HUD to answer additional questions of interest to HHS. 

    This brief builds on previous research by describing the behavioral health problems reported by 2,020 parents—including some fathers—at the outset of a shelter stay with their children and the association of these problems with parents’ prior experiences. For the purposes of this brief, behavioral health includes psychological distress, alcohol dependence, drug abuse, and symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).The brief then looks at changes in the parents’ behavioral health problems over the next 37 months and how those changes were related to housing stability following the episode of homelessness.

    Although rural counties have the highest teen birth rates in the United States, teen pregnancy prevention practitioners have developed few programs for youth in rural areas.To identify effective pregnancy prevention approaches for rural youth, the Administration for Children and Families within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services funded Mathematica Policy Research to evaluate an adapted version of the Reducing the Risk teen pregnancy prevention curriculum in rural Kentucky. With grant funding from the Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP), the Kentucky Department of Public Health has worked through 12 local health departments to implement Reducing the Risk in Kentucky high schools. For this study, Mathematica partnered with two of these local health departments to evaluate an adapted version of the curriculum in 13 high schools in a primarily rural area of central and southwestern Kentucky.

Seth Chamberlain (Administration for Children and Families) moderated the session and Lisa Rue (University of Northern Colorado) served as the discussant. Various methodologies were used across the presentations. (Author introduction)
