The Department of Health and Human Services has announced funding for another 10 “establishment” grants to states to build health insurance exchanges mandated under the Affordable Care Act.

Thirty-four other states and the District of Columbia previously have been awarded such grants, following earlier planning grants to 49 states and DC. States can use establishment grants to build their own exchange, partner with other organizations to build one, or prepare state information systems to support a federally built exchange.

Under the new funding opportunity, states can apply for funds through the end of 2014. While states are expected to have an exchange operational by 2014, awarded funds can be used beyond that time to improve the exchange.
