Nurture KC’s Legislative Priorities for 2022

Nurture KC advocates for government legislation to improve the health of local families in KC, as it also impacts the families we serve through our Healthy Start program. The organization’s legislative priorities for 2022 include:

1) Extend Medicaid Postpartum Coverage to One Year

2) Protect and Prioritize Immunization

3) Stay Involved in Emerging Issues Impacting Our Families, such as:

  • The Food Tax Elimination in Kansas
  • The Right to Counsel Ordinance in KC, MO

(This ordinance ensures tenants facing eviction have a right to an attorney at no cost.)
