Funding Opportunities for Community Partner Organizations!
This week, the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) posted two Requests for Grant Proposals (RFGPs) seeking community partner organizations to help reach out to and enroll Oregonians into health insurance.
In addition, OHA posted a Request for Applications (RFA) seeking volunteer organizations to provide enrollment assistance to Oregonians applying for health insurance through Cover Oregon. Cover Oregon and OHA are working together to administer the community partner program focused on helping Oregonians get the health insurance they need. More information is available below for each opportunity.
Two RFGPs are now posted on the state’s procurement website, the Oregon Procurement Information Network (ORPIN). Grantee organizations will be chosen through a formal RFGP process. OHA will evaluate proposals and award funds based on a proposed work plan and budget. Both grants will remain open until August 28, 2013. OHA anticipates that final agreements will be signed by October 1, 2013.
Public Education & Outreach Grant
The Public Education and Outreach Grant Program (grant 3640) is available to community-based organizations, local governments, and coalitions, and is designed to provide targeted outreach and public education to Oregonians who are potentially eligible to access health insurance through Cover Oregon, including people living in geographically isolated areas or with additional barriers. This grant does not fund enrollment assistance. Grant funding is for six months in conjunction with Cover Oregon open enrollment, running from October 2013 through March 2014.
Provider Outreach & Enrollment Grant
The Provider Outreach and Enrollment Grant Program (grant 3639) is available to providers such as health departments, migrant clinics, medical providers, mental health providers, hospitals, rural health clinics and more. The grant is designed to provide direct enrollment assistance and related outreach to those who are potentially eligible to access health insurance through Cover Oregon. Grant funding is for 12 months.
