nonprofits,local leaders & Grt.New Haven business sharing information
The Office of the Health Care Advocate, The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven and the United Way of Greater New Haven invite you to a special session on March 19 about opportunities for your organization and the people you serve under the Affordable Care Act.
More people will be eligible for insurance as of January 1. Nonprofits, small businesses, faith organizations and others will be able to apply for funding to support the training of a staff member to help members of their communities learn about the new options and enroll in Medicaid and new subsidized insurance, as appropriate. This is a part-time, temporary support intended to supplement an existing staff position.
Join us to learn more about the this opportunity:
Tuesday, March 19 from 3:30 - 5:00 p.m.
United Way of Greater New Haven
370 James Street, Suite 403, New Haven, CT
Space is limited. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
The purpose of the program is to reach community members where they are most comfortable as health insurance is a very personal topic. You don't have to be a health-related organization to do this work. It is another way to provide value in the community.
In Person Assisters (IPAs) help people who wouldn’t be likely to sign themselves up for insurance online.
We expect that hundreds of IPAs will be housed in community-based nonprofit organizations across the state or in small businesses that already focus on helping the community. There will be small grants of up to $6,000 to cover expenses for each In-Person Assister these organizations provide.
There is also the opportunity to help design the program - fill out the online survey - https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/6DCWMKG and you will be registered to receive the Request for Proposals. This is not the RFP itself. If you don't want to fill out the survey, but want to receive the RFP, just send your contact information to email@example.com
