Cover Oregon is partnering with the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) on an outreach program for hard-to-reach, non-English speaking, geographically isolated, and under served populations. As part of this program, Cover Oregon and OHA will work with community partner organizations to provide local, on-the-ground outreach and application assistance for individuals and families.
Community partner organizations may have staff and/or volunteers trained to conduct application assistance. Required training for potential assisters includes an online prerequisite followed by an in-person training session. Additionally, partner organizations must enter into a formal agreement with OHA as a community outreach and enrollment grantee, provider enrollment grantee, public education grantee or as a volunteer organization.
To get started on training:
- Register for online training. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing the link to begin the online course.
- Begin online course. This should take less than one hour to complete.
- Register for in-person training. The final screen of the online course will invite you to register for the in-person, four-hour enrollment assistance training. You can choose from various dates and locations. You will receive an email confirmation. Please keep in mind that space for the in-person training is limited and available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Funding opportunities for community partners will be made available through OHA and posted on the state’s procurement website, the Oregon Procurement Information Network (ORPIN). The first opportunity has closed and proposals are now being reviewed. Additional grant opportunities will be posted in early summer.
If you have any questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to working with you.
