Diaper Distribution Demonstration & Research Pilot (D3RP)

What is the Diaper Distribution Demonstration & Research Pilot (D3RP)?

The Diaper Distribution Demonstration & Research Pilot (D3RP) program is a monthly incentive for diaper distribution to qualified families. It was created to provide eligible families with wrap-around services while assessing the customer’s diaper needs. 

D3RP’s goals are to lower the health issues that many babies from low-income families experience (examples: diaper rash, urinary infections, etc.) by increasing disposable income, increasing access to community resources, reducing economic stress, unemployment, and increasing connection to the community. It will also improve the child’s readiness for school.

Diapers will be provided to eligible families who reside in CAANH catchment areas, which include New Haven, East Haven, West Haven, North Haven, and Hamden, CAANH will provide service to 48 children between 0-3 years old unless they have a medical condition to need them after that age.
