Hispanic Health Council, Inc.

2017 - $50,000

This grant will support the Hispanic Health Council’s Community Health Insurance Reform for the People (CHIRP) initiative, which educates consumers and fosters advocacy to ensure that health reform benefits people of color. As part of this work, the organization has developed a Community Advisory board made up of community health workers and newly insured consumers who can participate in policy advocacy and inform policymakers. This phase of the initiative is aimed at promoting health care policies to best serve the needs of people of color, particularly on issues related to health insurance coverage and the expansion of community health worker services.
