COPA Expands Low-Income Healthcare in Central California

 

When COPA leaders discovered a lapsed initiative to provide healthcare to low-income adults in Monterey and Santa Cruz Counties, leaders organized an assembly with seven out of the ten county supervisors and leveraged commitments to bust through the political blockage.  Congregational and labor leaders soon rejoiced when the Monterey Board of Supervisors voted to implement the Low Income Health Care Plan (LIHP) and extend healthcare coverage to as many as 1,500 additional adults.
