On November 13, 2015, HRSA Acting Administrator Jim Macrae announced awards totaling over $389,000 to six New York City-based health centers to provide health insurance outreach and enrollment assistance. The awardees are:
Apicha Community Health Center (New York) - $64,357
Callen-Lorde Community Health Center (New York) - $59,000
Community Health Initiatives, Inc. (Brooklyn) - $59,000
NYC Health & Hospitals (New York) - $59,000
Tremont Commonwealth Council Vip, Inc. (Bronx) - $59,000
Union Community Health Center (Bronx) - $89,261
Since the launch of the NY State of Health marketplace in 2013, community health centers have played a critical role in educating consumers about the new health insurance options available to them and helping them to enroll in coverage. These funds will make it possible for recipient health centers to ramp up their efforts to reach community members who remain uninsured.
