Congratulations to the Ohio Association of Foodbanks and Consortium Organizations

HHS announced the Ohio Association of Foodbanks and its consortium of social service agencies will receive $1.9 million in federal funds to provide in-person assistance to consumers in Ohio

CHAP would like to congratulate the Ohio Association of Foodbanks and its consortium partners on receiving $1.9 million to build and manage Navigator programs to help connect Ohio’s 1.35 million uninsured adults to health care coverage. Under the guidance of the Ohio Association of Foodbanks, the consortium will work together to raise awareness about the new Health Insurance Marketplace by coordinating grassroots outreach, traditional media and health care enrollment services.

Starting October 1st, Navigator programs made possible by this grant will begin enrolling uninsured Ohioans into the health care coverage option that works best for them. With the unique skills and statewide reach of this group of agencies, partners anticipate assisting over one million Ohioans. CHAP is proud to be a part of this valuable work, and looks forward to the exciting implementation period over the next few weeks. Please share this message and watch out for more information from us and our partners as it becomes available.
