San Francisco Business Times

Covered California, the Golden State’s health benefits exchange set up as a key part of implementing the Affordable Care Act, is set to announce $30 million in grants next week. Officials at the Sacramento-based exchange said Friday they’ll announce “the first 48 organizations that have been selected” for the federal grants next Tuesday, May 14. The grants are meant to provide “culturally relevant education and outreach” about the exchange’s coverage options to uninsured and low-income Californians and Golden State small businesses.
