The HHS Health Resources and Services Administration is offering $150 million in grants to community health centers across the nation to provide in-person enrollment assistance to patients who are uninsured.

The program is in addition to another funding opportunity the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services announced in April, making $54 million available to enable state health insurance exchanges to hire “Navigators” to aid consumers as they compare and select a health insurance benefits package.

Now, community health centers can apply for a grant to hire or train staff to walk patients through coverage options, determine eligibility and enroll in a benefit plan. The funding opportunity announcement for community health centers to apply for a grant is here. Information on award amounts by state and the health centers within each state that are eligible for funding is here.
