Medical Assistance Program Grants

What is the aim of the Medical Assistance Program Grants?

To provide financial assistance to States for payments of medical assistance on behalf of cash assistance recipients, children, pregnant women, and the aged who meet income and resource requirements, and other categorically-eligible groups.
