Opportunity Title: Partnerships to Increase Coverage in Communities Initiative
Estimated Funding Level: Up to $2,700,000

Announcement Description: The purpose of the Partnerships to Increase Coverage in Communities (PICC) Initiative is to identify, assist and educate minority populations about the Health Insurance Marketplace (Marketplace) and coverage opportunities made possible by the Affordable Care Act. The PICC Initiative will support organizations, partnerships and coalitions that will develop and provide comprehensive information and education sessions to minority consumers relative to the Marketplace; disseminate CMS or state-developed information to increase awareness of the Marketplace and, where appropriate, provide updated materials to more effectively offer culturally competent services specific to underserved communities, including translation services.  Successful grantees will assist individuals from underserved and/or hard to reach populations in applying for health insurance coverage through the Marketplace, providing guidance on financial assistance and coverage options to reach minority populations who are targeted for enrollment. These funds may not be used to support individuals funded as Navigators for the 2014 Open Enrollment period in Federally-facilitated and State Partnership Marketplaces.
