Here is a note of interest for any community-based facilitated enrollment agencies out there.  The Community Service Society has issued an RFP for a new project titled the Retention and Enrollment Assistance through Community and Healthcare Outreach (REACH-Out) Project (say that three times fast).

Applications are due Friday, October 21. Questions on the RFP and Project are due by September 30th to Catherine Chao at cchao@cssny.org.
