Connecting Consumers with Coverage

The Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts (BCBSMA) Foundation will provide a limited number of one-year grants in the amount of $40,000-$60,000 through its Connecting Consumers with Coverage grant program. Under this program, the Foundation will support both health insurance enrollment (initial and re-enrollment support) and community-centered outreach efforts to connect individuals to health insurance, with a focus on communities with a higher rate of uninsurance, a higher number of individuals that lack insurance, or that are more likely to experience gaps in coverage.

Funding is open to Massachusetts nonprofit organizations that that primarily serve people who have been socially, economically, culturally, or racially marginalized. The Foundation seeks organizations that have sophisticated knowledge of how to enroll in and navigate publicly subsidized health insurance programs and organizations that have the capacity and skills in conducting outreach to communities and individuals who may not already be connected with health insurance or the health care system. 

Letters of Inquiry are due on Tuesday, June 14, 2022 at 12 Noon EST.
