PLA Mini-Grants for Promoting Healthy Communities: Libraries Connecting You to Coverage

Deadline: Sunday, Oct. 21, 2018

The Public Library Association is seeking mini-grant applications from public libraries as part of a new initiative, Promoting Health Communities: Libraries Connecting You to Coverage. Up to 120 libraries will receive grants of $300 to disseminate information, offer education, partner with health insurance enrollment and provider groups, and encourage community members to enroll in the Affordable Care Act Health Insurance Marketplace.

PLA, along with nearly a dozen other organizations throughout the U.S., is working to promote health insurance enrollment. The primary goal is to promote enrollment in the health insurance marketplace during the reduced period of Open Enrollment of the Affordable Care Act, now between November 1 and December 15, 2018. Consumers that receive in-person assistance are nearly 60% more likely to enroll in the health insurance marketplace. Public libraries, as critical community anchors, are well positioned to share information about the change and support patron’s efforts to enroll successfully. For more information, visit the PLA website, or apply at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/connectingyoutocoverage
