New Report from Center on Budget and Policy Priorities (CBPP) Finds Coverage for American Indians and Alaska Natives at Risk under Senate GOP Health Bill

Findings from a recent Center on Budget and Policy Priorities (CBPP) report advise that the Senate GOP health bill would jeopardize American Indians and Alaskan Natives’ (AI/ANs’) recent coverage gains by slashing Medicaid and making marketplace coverage unaffordable, and as a result threatening health care access. Like many other groups, AI/ANs have benefitted greatly from the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA) coverage expansions. As the report notes, this progress is at risk under the Senate’s Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA).

Specifically, the CBPP warns that the bill would make significant changes to both Medicaid and the marketplace, reversing recent coverage gains and jeopardizing access to health care for AI/ANs by:

Effectively ending the Medicaid expansion.

  • Radically restructuring Medicaid’s federal financing.
  • Eliminating subsidies that help AI/ANs with out-of-pocket costs.
  • Cutting tax credits and increasing premiums.

Grants of up to $6,000 will be awarded to encourage classroom-based research in pre-college mathematics education.

The research should lead to a draft article suitable for submission to the Mathematics Teacher Educator, Journal for Research in Mathematics Education or an NCTM school journal.

To be eligible, applicants must be a current Full Individual member or E-Member of NCTM )if a grade 9-12 teacher), or someone who teaches at a college or university.

Terra Foundation for American Art Invites Applications for Art Design Chicago Program

The Terra Foundation for American Art has launched a grant initiative focused on the history of art and design in Chicago between the Great Fire (1871) and the close of the twentieth century.

Through the initiative, the foundation will award grants of up to $35,000 in support of freshly conceived exhibitions, academic programs, publications, and public programs designed to deepen and expand understanding of the visual arts and design that emerged from Chicago (1871–2000); Chicago’s distinctive character as an art and design center and the diverse factors that have shaped Chicago’s artistic culture; and the ways in which Chicago artists and designers have engaged with and influenced culture nationally and internationally.

Projects funded through this initiative will be key elements of Art Design Chicago, the first-ever large-scale exploration of Chicago’s art and design history. Culminating in a major series of concurrent exhibitions and public programs in 2018, Art Design Chicago will shed new light on the artists and designers associated with Chicago, the city’s role as a metropolitan art center, and its significant contributions to visual and material culture worldwide.

Art Design Chicago will include a comprehensive communications campaign designed to raise awareness locally/internationally and drive public participation. Programs must be scheduled during the second half of 2018 to take full advantage of the marketing efforts for the initiative.

Letters of Inquiry must be received no later than September 27, 2017. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full application by December 1, 2017.

See the Terra Foundation website for a complete program description, eligibility criteria, and application instructions and deadlines.
