HARTFORD, Conn. (April 22, 2019)—Access Health CT (AHCT) today announced the opening of its fiscal year 2020 Navigator Grant Program. The program highlights the commitment of AHCT to enhance current outreach efforts by engaging with community organizations that have deep relationships throughout the state. A strong focus of the program for this upcoming year will be to engage African-American/Black, Hispanic/Latino and Asian communities where AHCT has seen either enrollment decreasing over the last four years, or an opportunity to help underserved populations.
“This year’s Navigator Program will allow Access Health CT to deepen its community relationships with the goal to engage, educate and enroll individuals in target communities throughout Connecticut,” said Chief Executive Officer, James Michel. “This is one of the many ways we will be improving a year-round commitment to the communities we serve.”
Michel also notes that Navigators will support enrollment and education efforts and help Connecticut residents better use their plans. “From selecting a Primary Care Physician (PCP) to using your plan for preventative care, Access Health CT is here to help,” he said.
Over the next few weeks, Access Health CT will be selecting four (4) community organizations via a Request for Proposal (RFP) process. Each organization will receive funding via a grant to perform each of the required activities. Each grant will not exceed seventy-five thousand dollars ($75,000) during the term, which will be from July 1, 2019 to June 30, 2020.
