The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced Tuesday nearly $32 million in grants to help states sign up children for low-income health coverage.

In California, nine organizations, including the Los Angeles Unified School District, will together get roughly $6.2 million in grants ranging from $190,000 to slightly less than $1 million. The money is intended to help them identify and enroll children into Medi-Cal, the state’s Medicaid program for the poor.
