PLA Grants for Promoting Healthy Communities: Libraries Connecting You to Coverage
Deadline: September 24, 2019
As part of its ongoing work to support the public library’s role in creating healthy communities, the Public Library Association (PLA) is offering resources for libraries to help more Americans enroll in affordable health insurance. Through its second annual initiative, Libraries Connecting You to Coverage, PLA is offering mini-grants of $500 to support up to 100 U.S. public libraries. Awardees will disseminate information, offer education, partner with health insurance enrollment and provider groups, and encourage community members to enroll in the Health Insurance Marketplace during the open enrollment period.
PLA also is providing all libraries with tips and tools to make educating communities easy, including resources and communication assets found below.
For more information and too apply for a PLA mini-grant, visit the PLA website. Priority will be given to applicants in states that utilize the federal marketplace platform (HealthCare.gov) or the Federally-facilitated Marketplace (FFM). View a list of states with their insurance marketplace types. Awardees will be notified in early October.
